anyone got this on their radar ? Looks awesome, 1 week in WA is normally = one month of wind here, especially that time of year.
You want wind in January,go to Cervantes,it howls .arguably the windiest spot on the west coast .and only a short drive from Perth ,
can get bumpy, but a great place to sail or race ,you know your got muscles after you've sailed at Cervantes ,nice pubs good food ,
i miss it by a week ,on my holiday ,but will still sail there .bad planning as usual,
take a 5,0 when not racing ,have some bump and jump time .
i had to borrow a 4,7 last year in December,and still got blown out of the water ,as did many others .
we measured the wind ,39 knots .at 4 pm .loved it .I love Cervantes .
sorry for butting in on the QLD forum .
It'd been a long time since I've sailed Cervantes, but just remember the most amazing colored water , like a pool in the morning and super windy after lunch ....I lived in WA for 4+ years and have never recovered :( 4.7 - 5.2 m the only sails i ever used Nth of Perth.
I think last years event saw some crew even finish on the podium on a couple of races on wave sails if I'm correct?
Love the format they have got going on with this event, super long races, 3 days, so on the rare chance of a no wind day there are 2 other days to make up for it....its a much better consideration that the LOC , one day hit or miss, the dinner at the lobster shack sounds pretty good too. :)
Wait till you see the new hotel. ( pub)
After your've collected the prize money swing up to shark bay ,we will be up there trying to break some PB times we set last year .
Looks like a great event. I'm in, cant wait just booked my flights and van.
awesome, heading west! doing LOC also? Did you get a camper van.... you might have to invest in some wave gear?!!
Gee i wish i had access to that much wind.

Just a regular van. Not doing LOC have to be back at work. Ticked that one off before though maybe again one day. Have one wave board and 3 wave sails already to take still need another small wave board for jnr and slalom kit. Have booked the extra baggage so will be taking everything we can!
sounds great....I'm working on a plan to be there....gunna need small gear I think...
