^ Sssshhhhhh...... don't make too much noise about it. You will scare the wind away. Wind or work? Wind or work? Its a gamble..... putting all mine on black. For Wind. Dont want red arrows!!

Hey Jeff, if you get the operation done you won't have to "lift and tuck" any more and you'll be able to wear your leotard at pilates safely in the knowledge that your gear won't fall out, you'll look much better in a bikini too

Bwahaha, if you spent some time down in our part of the world you would have been exposed to Jeff in his sluggos in the carpark fashion parade.

The "regulars" at Turner's Camp love it and Jeff has to make sure he's safely locked inside his car once the sun goes down

Gday Bob, ripper forecast down your way. No such joy here.
If theres wind when you are in town come for a sail.

Wally World at Turner's Camp today. Is Summer here yet?
Might even be a puff in the afternoon while the bank's out, for the slalom gear.

Lovely 5-10kn high tide winter sail at Beachmere yesterday on the BIC. Got an hour and a half of nice gentle breeze before it dropped out below 5 again. Clean water and blue skies and a 25deg day.

Gunna be even better today at Turners.
Can't believe it's Winter. No wet suit needed.
The guy's at Victoria Point weren't available to sail down there today, so it's a Wally meet (or long boards) at Turners.

I like the nice clean water out the front of Beachmere and the non-existent boat traffic, just me and the stingrays. Turners is good for a stronger wind and low tides though. No wind till really late today so a bunch of us hit the motocross track to churn out laps instead. We all ride like we think we're still 20 but now feel all busted @rse like we're 80

Should be good mate. Shame I couldn't stay up for another go. Stuff to do.
Edit: Just looked at it, and if it's north west it might be a little yucky.

Was a nice day.

I had a sail Saturday and knew there was going to be less wind Sunday until real late so didn't worry about it. I'll head down to Phillip Street later on today if there's enough NW.

So who's going to Wello tomorrow?
Looks like westerlies.
My first day out for 9 months, I may need a rescue if my leg/back goes on me again.

I wasn't serious about being rescued.
Is there anywhere good at Bribie in a Westerly?

Yeah, Bongaree mate. About as good as ya get in a westerly.
Get's a little bit of confused chop there though. Best on low tide and make your way over to the other side of the passage.

Anyone get out yesterday arvo?

I was rat running my way back from the Lake, trying to dodge all the accidents.
No wind up there, but was a nice short break.

For those who are interested, the Bistro is open and doing a roaring trade.
Was expecting the place to be empty, but we were actually lucky to get a spot on the waterfront.

You may want to ring and book if you are thinking of going over the September holidays, as apparently it is looking to be pretty busy.

Well that was a fun session. Good to see most of the usual suspects. Especially good to rig a sail under 8.0m.

Took a while for the tide to come in, but it was worth the wait.

For those of you who didn't sail today, we have discovered that the webbing on harnesses seem to contract somewhat over the colder months. You may want to check yours before heading out.

Hope those of you lucky enough to get out tomorrow have another fun day.

Yeah, my harness has shrunk heaps over the last couple of months


Only a quick session in blustery conditions for me but good to catch up with a few people again, even Mal made the journey up from the dark side.

Jeff, season has already started. Weve had 2 great Northerly Fridays here at GB in the last 2 weeks. One 25kts+ n the other 18kts.
Dags, get on the water. You know itll fix you up straight away.
