I took a low cost water resistant camera out for a sail. Sat in the middle and tried to get a few pictures. The lens fogged a bit so the quality is average but it gives you some idea.
Wading into the lake the water was literally glassy. This was in 15-20 knots of wind!!!
I sat 3/4 of the way across and shot a few passers by. This was the really rough part of the lake! Kato and Kim approach
Now I'm a Gybe mark Kato!
Spotty has me in his sights
Nice Gybe Spotty!
Thumbs Up! Choco and Kato. It isn't that deep. They are standing up to their knees in soft mud!
Is this just a Mirage?
Thanks for the photos Daffy, I have been following the srite ups and speeds with great interest. Apart from the mud it sounds excellent.
A couple of shots from the rigging area looking out to the lake...
great shots Daffy, making me very jealous there
The drive in Day 1
Sand tracks to promised land

Limestone,very hard and pointy. Don,t hit again
Daffy making Alpha,s
thank god there's only one photo of you head Kato!
I think you are correct Choco. If it was me there would be more spray!
Jimbobs own backyard I get withdrawal symtoms every time somebody post a photo.
Lucky lad and its a ripper of a spot.
I posted some photos on the New NM record from lake George thread as well
Some pics of us smoking over the weed Start Drooling Speed Freaks,
Sailed a whole session and did not even see kato, don't crash out here either its a painful slog back in knee hi sludge/mud with weed on top.
Some would SA has always been renowned for quality weed, but this is ridiculous, feeling pretty HI here :), brought some home to grow and find a unused lake.
When, and where to gybe? the choice is easy...
Time to make Rooster Tail spray again....
Time to Pull the Rip Cord and let it GO!!! for another mile....
Strap to Strap gybing heaven on the Holy Cheese, or is it a carpet of Sponge below
They are super sweet pics. What a grat sailing location, can't wait to sail the lake!
Nice strap to strap gybe too!
great pics Guys!! Spotty awesome shots from your mast mounted camera, now people will get an idea what Lake George is about.
Fantastic Spotty, that gave a great perspective.
How much farther is the lake from Sandy Pt??
Spotty what brand gear did you use to take the snaps? Love to know:-)
Nice pics boys !!
I like the way no one mentioned how shallow it looks.. how dangerous it is and turned the post into a negative, it must only happen to me.
funny people from NSW will want to travel all that way wen theres at least 3 places just as good much closer but there too dangerous LOL
good to see ya smiling faces boys :_)
no wind in nsw just lots of rain shame we cant power a rainsurfer I'd be cracking 45 for sure !! ha ha
have fun !! live life keep smiling
i'd be too scared. it looks shallow
Awesome pics guys. Spotty i reckon you get a job with White Caps! Bloody great shots! Nice to see the weed from mast high where it can't grab onto you and hold you prisoner until the next gust. Did a few runs with what can only be described as a "Hawiian Grass Skirt" weed dress on. Very becoming. Glad there were was no cameras around then. Soooooo keen to go back. How often do the planets line up and make it all work?
aus1111. that's good to know.
i love the photo of spotty, screaming along at 40+ knots and what's goingthrough his mind.....
ummm i wonder what the head of the sail is doing, i might just have a quick look.
either that or he has wind.
Jimbob is the expert on the weather cycle but apparently you get 4 seabreeze days in a row every week or so(aligning with approaching highs?), water levels are another concern as this depends on the drains feeding the lake and the winter king tide top-up.
