I'm heading out now, but will probably come in when the 5.5's get towed back, to partake of a quiet beverage or two. Looks like a light Nor'Wester at the moment, not real exciting...

I realised today a positive factor of the increased in number and size of the yellow jellyfish on Pittwater, they're great for starting practice!
Just pick one and keep the nose of your board above it for 30 seconds, then pump like crazy for 30 seconds.
Stop, relax, reset, go again!

While Ayreforce is coming back from Raceboard duties, I'm keeping a longboard presence on Pittwater

After a fairly light sail on Saturday, I went out from Newport today in what you could only describe a perfect conditions for the LT. It was a southerly at maybe 12 knots and slowly built to maybe 15k. I was mostly planning downwind and fully in the harness upwind to start and as the breeze increased I felt progressively more powered up. A perfect way to get more comfortable with sailing over-powered. I was using my normal light wind setting so maybe I could have flattened the gear out but, as I said, it was good practice to sail like that.

I sailed down to the southern police mooring off BYRA then ran square from it down to near Church Point, then using that point as my bottom mark I sailed half a dozen upwind downwind laps between there and the police mooring.

Anyway, after such a good session I'm keen for a sail tomorrow evening after work and looking forward to when the Friday LT twilights start up again.
