There is a pretty good chance Wavesailing #1 will be held on Saturday 15 September. I realise that many of you probably haven't done much sailing over the winter and this will be more of a chance to hang at the beach and socialize while discussing that time you bailed from that huge unintentional back loop. Regardless ,you will get a score on the day even if you only sail a few metres out and back.

At this stage I would say that there is a %90 percent chance that the event will occur at Bell Buoy but naturally the final call will be made later in the week as the forecast changes.

Membership renewals will be taken at the beach but anyone with the ability to sort it out online beforehand will get a free cupcake on the day.

Fingers crossed. Probably a bit of swell with it too

I will send out email renewal info to past members tonight or tomorrow for those who want a cupcake.

Keep warming up everyone.

That's actually 'straight air', performed with Greenies usual precision and prowess. I have been watching him closely, and have learned all that I know from him... I believe that the pinnacle of 'straight air' is landing on your head, with your gear on top of you...isn't it?

You need to reach further back on the boom young (Ha!) Clarky.. Nice Barrel Roll. They are back in by the way! Look forward to see more of THAT!!!
And! Table Top Push Loops are a high scoring move for anyone who can land one on there're head!!

Now that is what I call precision sailing!

6 bods in the air, at once, that close to each other, in all different attitudes, all looking completely out of control...just like a big day at Bellbuoy - this coming SATURDAY for instance!

HI all,

At this stage we are planning an 11am briefing on Saturday (15/9/18) morning, Bellbuoy Beach is the most likely location.

Bellbuoy is about 15 minutes drive past Georgetown, for those who may not have been there before.

Alan will make final call.

I wanted to get something semi-formal up here tonight so all of youse can make plans.

If people travelling from Hobart want a place to stay on Friday night in Launceston, let me know.

Guess what - Huey has done it AGAIN!!!

We really should be used to this by now, and not even dream that a forecast 2 days out will be vaguely accurate.

Don't count any chickens, or cancel any alternative plans. Prepare for yet another SKUNKING!

No, he just got a bit frustrated trying to do that knitting stitch you posted.

Ok so its a bit of a spring pattern tomorrow so conditions might bounce around a little bit...as usual but I think the 11 am briefing is ok.

Before I make the big drive up, do you think it will be too windy?

The forecast is looking better now than it did last night with a peak of 35 knots which is sailable. We also have the option of moving to east beach which is usually 5 to 10 knots lighter in a westerly so I think it will be OK.
Cheers Al

Looks like it should be a great day with slightly downgraded forecast...
The beauty of Bell Buoy in the big conditions is that the waves are breaking of the point, so there is no need to come all the way in to the beach every run and go out through the beach break...

Bellbuoy is a randomised mess at the moment, courtesy of that northerly yesterday.

East is much more organised, and gets my vote.

Thanks for the "real time-real world" description Geoff.

You can start in "group 2' Kazza, so don't stress

Before we get too far on should we amend location now?

I agree with your suggestion Clarence.

There are several other advantages with East -
- It has sand
- it has toilets
- shops are close
- coffee is close
And there is less 'home' advantage (except for Cookie / Gil)

I just spoke to Gillian and Alan

New official location EAST BEACH (near Low Head).

NOT BellBuoy Beach.

Other details as per previous emails.

For people travelling from Hobart in the rain don't stress if you are 30 mins later.

May be raining buckets at this moment, but rain should clear as turns to the west. We will put up the marque for some shelter.
