Handed in to SHQ. If you can identify its make and whether its tendon, rubber or mechanical, I’m sure the folks at SHQ will return it to you

So did anyone get a good sail?

Went down a 4-4:30 pm (thought I'd catch the wind dropping) and it was still 35-40knots...way to big for my 4.2m

Went out at Seaford at 1:30 thinking it'd be less windy than GP...

Went for maybe 6 short runs in and out, then spent the rest of the time being scored by the same whipping down the beach. Thought it might drop a bit after FB went to 35 knots but it was simply insane.

Ok I made a mistake. I am 95 kg and put up a 3.4M on an 85 litre. Two great runs under control fun. then a swim say 200m no wind or wind only 30 knots not 42knots Then a gust I ended up what felt like halfway to Sandringham.

sail to small and a very unfit sailer means danger, always better to sail overpowered

i will store the sail for another 10 years before it comes out again I assume.

See you melbourne cup cup weekend at sandy point. I am taking the kids with a heap of kid gear, windskate, sups and some gear for me, I assume BBQ at surf club Saturday night.

have fun on the water. I won't be taking the 3.4
