Looking at the possibility of holding the comp at Goats Sunday afternoon. Will keep ya all posted.
I can't sail, thanks Veatzy your time will come but I can bring down the camera
Houston you may need to bring one of the kids down to take photos,your old ,brittle, arthritic hands,may bust a finger pressing the button?.
oh yeah, hump my pump and tripple bump
Goats Sunday afternoon. Depending on the wind, all in fun sailing Expression session till 5.30 then 4 man final. Hopefully the wind will be in by 3-4pm.
There will be a briefing at 3pm. I'll try and post about 1pm detailing conditions.
Houston can you be there to assist??
Awesome Ive got a bit of a sniffley but will be there 4 sure bring on nice weather
Yeah I'll be there, remember to enter you HAVE to be a member of Windsurfing Tas Inc so I'll bring down membership forms if you bring along your $50 (covers 12 months)
I'll also have the camera so let's hope it turns on, could be a bit of fun
Very small swell at Goats today, about waist high with the occasional shoulder set and the banks are good with no closeouts so very safe for all. The wind is ENE at Dunally so thats a good sign for this afternoon.
There is no cost to enter the wave comp this afternoon but you will need to be a member of windsurfing tas. Anthony will have membership forms available at the beach, please bring your $50 to become a member and support Windsurfing in our lovely state.
The membership 'one off' payment will get you entry into all WT events throughout the year.
This event is for all to come and enjoy sailing at one of the nicest beaches in the Hobart area, not to mention the only place to get East winds.
Everyone at the beach will be able to contribute to the judging wether you are entered or not.
Good luck for today. Not much wind about in the north this weekend.
Did it happen?
If it did I'm keen to see some pics, c'mon the Duke of Hazardous Bottom turns.
I would have been there, but I'm about 4000km away. Mmm, tropical waters, 15-20 knot winds, no gear!!!
Well Goats finally turned it on for a spectacular first wave event for the year.
Warm, sunny, beautiful up to shoulder high waves even if the wind was a bit on the light side.
Everyone had a brilliant sail, great to see Fos get his first down the line ride with a nice little smack and Jez get his first wave ride ever.........you've got the monkey off your back mate .
Competitors: Kazza, Jez, Fos, Rob, Vietzy, Damo, Fluro, Jordon, Brett, Kaleb.
Nathan turned up for a social sail, Andy, Loz & Artis turned up for support, Jodie and I got behind the camera's
The offical results:
First place: Karen Robertson (even though Kazza was the only female in the event she came in 5th overall)
First place: Kaleb Smith (sponsored by Ezzy)
Second: Anthony Vietz (sponsored by AV Glass and Glazing)
Third: Tim Hale (Fluro)
Fourth: Damien Wallace
First place: Jordon Bradford (also came in 6th overall, not bad for a punk rock 15 year old)
Finished off a fantastic day with a quiet little drink in the car park .
I've got heaps of pics so will try and get a few up over the next couple of days.
Here's a taste of pics to come
Common your grace,
Grace us with more fotos
Sorry had to go out tonight I'll stick a few up tomorrow night
You could use the serviette for wiping the dribble off your chin
I was wondering how I could clean up the s..t coming out of my mouth ,the good ol serviette should fix her ,1000 and one uses, maybe I could put it on my lap to stop my pants from getting soiled, there's a lesson in this for everyone, knife on the left fork on the right,the splade? well done everybody good day good people good ****.
Got a few to put up so it'll take a while
I've tried to get everyone in sequence
Well done on getting round one of the wavesailing state titles off to a flying start. Nice one Buzzy taking out first place.
