Why stay in infected Adelaide on Saturday when the alternative is to go to Robe for what looks like a good forecast?

Cause from recent experience Robe is full of infected coughing overweight Victorians in dual cab utes driving around like wankers at 100km on long beach

The wind was strong. The waves were a bit average. Better jumping than wave riding day...

Sounds like this summer all round

They've closed Robe now

Drawn the curtains and shut the doors

Asked us all not to visit - whose painting the house or cleaning out the shed this easter!!

Seen that. Unprecedented times. At least our sport has a very low risk profile when compared to most. Maybe more will see the light at the end of the day! Everyone be safe whilst windsurfing as much as allowed (and possible in autumn)...

Don't you mean tunnel.

At least there's plenty of water in comparison to peope using it & we don't have to worry about the 1.5m rule when sailing. Rigging etc might be a bit of a different experience.

The flew at the end of the sail, tip at the end of the board, close out at the end of the wave, beer at the end of the sail?

Sailed Nene Creek last night 17- 20 steady knots and overhead waves. No social distancing or isolation issues being the only one on the beach.

I was in Robe last weekend. The only retail businesses open were the supermarket, drive in bottleshop, walk-in bottleshop, one takeaway....mainstreet virtually deserted and no Victorian number plates to be seen.
