the boat went in the water today but probably won't be available as there is still a lot to do ,so we can't rely on it as a back up boat. looking at the forecast i won't be fit enough to sail that far of the plane so i will pull out of the race

Cape to Cape was great fun. Light wind and with a wind shift the last few km an upwind slog- despite that a great sail. In a solid SE-E this course would be EPIC!

Thanks to Adventurethon/ NQ Ocean Paddle Series for having us, and many thanks to the support crew and SeaLink who got us out there.

Back in 2019- NQ sailors who are keen for some open water racing should put this one on the calendar!

what board and sail did you use and were there any other sailors out there. bowen had a gusty 15 knts at the front beach but the sand is heaped in to lots of gutters and you could hit a fin real easy ,probably from the cyclone. stopped at alva on the way back ,but the current was to strong

Used a Phantom 377L and 9.5 severne raceboard sail. Dennis Winstanley was a legend on windsurfer LT. I think carrying an extra 3 square metres of cloth was pretty helpful

Some actual wind finally! Great session at Geoffrey Bay. Gave the Dyno it's first thorough workout it's a super sweet board for conditions here! Small issue of a boom breaking out the back but once ashore and boom changed resumed for s great session. Loving the Maggie Island sailing!

the wind filled in good at pallarenda ,i suprised my self as some fitness has come back,the daily walks have really helped

Nice sail, nice wind Grich. Was that today?

Apparently the BOM reckons there is a chance the Low up near the Solomons may form into a cyclone. We had zero cyclones last summer and a cold winter, I did wonder whether that meant a heap of cyclones this summer, but a cyclone in September, WTF!

EDIT!
Actually it looks like its TFB if we do get a cyclone before November, BOM's on holidays and we're on our own

Broke the drought last weekend, actually got a sail both days, solid 20 in the gusts Sat and a little less Sunday. Was surprised how cool the water was which makes you wonder how a cyclone could be forming at the moment. Not supposed to come too far west but pretty unusual this time of year.

That sounds nasty Greg! Fabulous session over at the island today. 18ish knots used my Dyno 115 which tucks into the short chop brilliantly for turns. Pseudo wavesailing with the swell here. Haven't had such a good sesh for ages!!

Sounds like a great idea! Another good session at magnetic today though much lighter so out on f-race 140. Kids out and planing so they were stoked ( which is a Very Good Thing to keep them sailing). Sadly packing up from the island tomorrow.

Took the day off work and a had a nice sail this morning. Was a bit iffy early on but came in a solid 15 ESE. It was considerably more enjoyable than being at work!
