I was silly enough to not put my windSUP on the car on saturday so just gossiped in the park with the boys and didn't end up sailing. Sunday arvo it blew up after about 1400 and Johnny B got to sail past a slogging Bradley heaps of times while I stayed at home and pretended to be warm. Today looked effing fantastic on the forecast and the sky was blue as well, I put the windSUP on the car as a "plan B" and was glad I did, great windSUP conditions. Now waiting to see what tomorrow brings.


We had a bit of excitement with an unexpected visitor after you left John. Dags to the rescue....

Never a dull moment with the Sandstone Mob.
What are the odd's of that happening, and a girl with a drone at the same time.
Lovely girl - Brie, sent me some footage too.
The most perfect, beautiful day on the Wally too. Great catching up with some of the Mob again.
Can't wait for summer, And Wind!!!

That's hilarious, normally we're trying to direct Jeff back to shore, but he's not been sailing too much recently so a kangaroo stepped in to keep your training up to scratch Dag

Awesome weather but not the greatest sailing day for me. Weird wind with 20kn at Redcliffe and Spitfire Channel, but only 15 at the most at Sandstone. Small tide so not deep enough to use a big fin and the GO with a 9m sail so slogged around a bit on the MR with a 7.5m sail. The wind really came in nice just as I started to hit the bottom, I gotta get me a big delta fin I reckon. Johnny B was out scooting around with a 30cm delta in knee deep water while I packed up sulking. Oh well, there's always tomorrow

Yo Paddles, we had 18-20 before lunch then it slowly fizzed out as the arvo rolled on. Typical scenario for this year.

Plenty of wind today, but up and down with no holes in it. Sometimes it dropped out and sometimes a 6.5 would have been alright, I settled on 7.5 and was overpowered sometimes and slogging. As always it blew in more consistently when I ran out of water so I left Johnny B and Adam out there on their big delta fins to sail the shallows till it got dry.

So a decent SE coming in Wednesday on and crappy tides locally unless someone can tell me where to go locally. Thinking of heading to Cootharaba wed/thur, anyone keen?

Just go over to the other side of the channel and sail the out going tide from southern end of Bongaree, you can sail over to the flats if you want even at dead low tide and have a massive flat water area to yourself. Once you get use to the channel you will never worry about low water again and to be honest the flat water out from Bongaree is better than Pebble.

Yep. What he said. Right on low you won't have any water though with those tide's coming up.
You can sail to the south of the green beacon and the bank out there though.
