Didn't have time to go to Bribie, so I went to Manly instead.
Low-Medium winds and lots of tacks and jibes in steep waves.
Can always depend on Manly for chop.
Not quite enough wind to maintain a plane for long, but good practice.

Hello Queenslanders we coming up for September with sups and windsurfers. At home in vic we do not wear life jackets. Do we need to wear them? Boy 12 daughter 11, 8 , 5. The younger 2 do wear them but the others don't any more your thoughts on 11 and 12 year old without life jackets. Are we going to get fined?


I'm 46 and wear one, helps me float, protects my ribs in catapults and I can put mars bars in the front pocket.

Great afternoon at Turner's Camp this afternoon. Pete got there first and then Adam, myself, Parso and JV Jonno joined him. Wind slowly came in and ended up gusting 15 to 20 in the end which made my 9m sail a bit of a handful till I busted it and packed up.


Super flat water and high speeds.

Great afternoon at Turners, the storm missed us and the wind stayed in. I gave it away after breaking a harness line.
I have shoulder probs so cruised around on a 6.6 koyote and the 75 w slalom but a 7.3 koncept or 7.8 race would have been ideal. Great to catch up with the boys after the lake trip too. Weed was a problem so a weed fin was necessary or stop every 100 m to clear it. Paddles drove his 9.1 rig to disintegration speed. The loud noise I heard was either a sonic boom or the panel exploding. JV was still out when I left at 5.30. Adam was really enjoying the conditions and Mike was out there too. Wouldn't be dead for quids. See what tomorrow brings at either Manly or Vicci Point

It felt quicker with a panel blown out, man alive it made some noise though

I really should have downsized to 7.5 but didn't want to waste time re-rigging, I was well overpowered in the end and am a bit sore from hanging on to it

Yeah Dag, it blew a bit while those storms were hanging around and now it's calm again. You didn't miss much it was just up and down gusty to 15kn or so good stay on the couch weather.

Rigged 6.5 at RQ this morning - was going to practice non planing gybes - haha

first run out on phantom had me planing and then was able to waterstart with the small sail - no non- planing practice this morning ;-)

came in in and got the shortboard but didn't rerig bigger as I was time pressured. Few good planing runs - underdone on the 6.5. Was holding out for the afternoons predicted winds - joke!

looking forward to see if promised winds deliver over next few days

cheers Jeff

Very windy and miserable day today with rain squalls. Adam, Dag, Tony and The Pope braved the waves off Bongaree through the low tide and then Adam and Tony joined Jeff, Brad and myself at Sandstone mid afternoon when there was enough water. Quite windy with all of us on 5.5m to 6m sails except Adam who thought it was a good idea to rig a 7m ................... bad idea Adam

Tony and myself tried out our new 'small' boards that we both bought for when the wind gets a bit silly like this arvo and had heaps of fun. The waves weren't too crazy at Sandstone so it was quite good even when the wind went a little crazy around 4pm. Good afternoon of mucking around and day two of Jeff's plan for 5 days of sailing in a row

That was a fun session

Started with a 7.0 as well, which was a good choice initially. Went down to a 5.5 after that which was plenty big enough after it came in for real.
Hope those of you with free time,(bludgers) get to enjoy the rest of the forecast winds.
