Dave when do you plan on arriving?

At this stage Saturday may be an Easterly in the afternoon, Sunday/Monday SW'erly & after that it doesn't seem that promising but things could change. If the forecast is right I'll sail Saturday & most likely Sunday as well, good chance Shane & Steve will be out over the weekend as well. Weed fins are often needed down here if you want to sail in the flat, especially if you want to try Lilacs/Harding Rd in Princess Royal Harbour in Albany.

Hi Morts, I like fast and have new board to try.
How big a fin is usual?
We arrive after lunch on Sunday
Does Erith Crump still sail there and a guy called Adrian?

Cheers

To sail on the speed area a sub 25cm during summer is usually required, I have a delta 21cm you could try it you don't have one. General harbour sailing no size restrictions.

Possibly an Easterly next Wednesday but they only seem to be happening for 1 day this year instead of 3-4 in a row like previous years. Think this is partly due to the -ve Southern annular mode.

Last I heard Erith has gone to the dark side... Sorry don't know an Adrian.

Hey Dave the forecast still looks pretty good for Wednesday arvo. I'm actually in Mandurah for a couple of days but plan to head home early Wednesday morning & sail in the afternoon. There will probably also be at least one other Albanian sailing as well, I'll give him the heads up.

Kato I missed meeting you yesterday, was that you flying around on the Green board? If you will be in Albany on Wednesday would be great to catch up for a sail

No worries Kato, was a fun afternoon here as I'm sure it was in Margs. May not be that warm here in Albany tomorrow...
