Perhaps good opportunity to do it in the bay? Chelsea/bonbeach would be a good spot!

Hey Guys I am seriously considering the Bay for Sunday. Will Chelsea/Bonbeach work on a SW/SSW. If so what address as it was centuries ago I launched from there with Evan
Also can we drum up a crowd as we will not get the Sandy Point/Invy crew to travel

You are welcome to hold it in the Wassup club - bbq, bit of grass and will be ok in any wind with no easterly.
give me a buzz later and happy to help

From past experience i reckon the north end of the bay would be a better option, sometimes Bonno misses out if the wind is ssw. Last time i checked Meteye it showed Bonno would be lighter than Elwood.

We can launch from dawson ave or in the past events have been run from the sailing club area. Going to be a coolish day so shouldn't be to many swimmers around. Hopefully we don't get a storm Saturday as that might dirty the water.
Looks to be early wind everywhere so even Bonno area is an option for the morning.
How will the freerace boundry be set in the bay?

Ok the brains trust has been talking and appreciate the input from dodo and The J.
Saturday is no go
Sunday race day will be confirmed tomorrow but is looking like Elwood. Launching from Dawson's Ave
The GPS box will be open all areas but you will need to consider the no boating zones

Final Call is Inverloch
WSW 14 - 16kts
10am Start for 11am first race
Second race after lunch
Launching from the Rotunda just back from the Angling Club
BYO Lunch

Would have loved to do Sandy but have to be back home to cook dinner for my wife's birthday!

Note for March GPS Race Day is a dedicated Port Phillip Bay day
And if we can think that far ahead I will do a Winter Northerly at Swan Bay

Sorry Evan have been slack will get results up soon. Light winds which made the field tight. It is a wonder that Jman has not told you one of the results but he is a humble man

One race happening at Elwood 3/4 March and I am wanting to run a Winter northerly in Geelong
