I remember you , so inspired by that mount I built my own . How much easier is a GoPro and a fast computer. Welcome back

Hey Kato... sorry not sure who you are but it was a fun few days! I have really good memories of it. So much easier to film now that's for sure... I have a drone now and I'm having fun with that. Would love to take it down to Sandy Point.

It's looking a bit promising on GFS Weather model (Windguru) for the Cup WE Monday, but other models don't agree so it's not a sure thing.

The weather models are still slightly different (and converging) but there is definitely something happening between Sunday afternoon and Wednesday morning.

And a long range teaser for Saturday Week as well.

The tease is getting bigger! Looks like my departure for WA will be delayed a few days.

Saturday is shaping up to be Epic. Low tide is 12 midday.

The strongest winds are forecast for late Friday arvo on some models, but the tide will be right in at 5.30pm, and probably very high with the surge.

If anyone was thinking that would ever like to sail the speed strip at Sandy Point, I don't think you will see a much better opportunity than this weekend.
The forecasts are firming up for Saturday, and now it actually looks like Sunday could also be OK, and then another promising front for Tuesday after that!

Low tide Saturday is right around Midday and gets later by about an hour each day after.

Still looking solid for Saturday. Not so certain for wind direction on Sunday but I'll be spent by them I hope

I am actually starting to get a bit nervous. I have been rigging up 5.0's and 4.4's just to check I remember how to!

250-260 is the ideal seed angle.

Does that mean we are getting a Tassie invasion?

And one of those moments when the fin lets go and is good enough to autopilot back as you ease off, regain control and give it heaps again . 44-45pk
