    Good to know you left the sandhill behind Chook, and I’m sure your mileage was better after that😄.  We’ve been home a few days then hooked van back on and are in Mt Barker SA for the weekend and caught up with the grandkids including our new granddaughter (Poppy) who was born a few weeks ago 7 weeks prem. Great few hours for Jen and I to nurse her as she’s not much bigger than a bag of coffee beans. There all healthy and gave us lots of hugs and kisses. Great to be a grandparent and your time will come soon enough Chook and Anne. Glad you’re home safe. 👍

    Some awesome shots there mate.
    Back home, settled back in and missing Bull's coffee already.
    It was fantastic to catch up with close friends once again and a shame others couldn't make it.
    Had a brilliant trip home experiencing nature at its best with heavy fog out of Ceduna at daybreak all the way to Yalata then 46 degrees as the day warmed up further into WA.
    Booked into the Park at Kingston again for next year and cant wait for it to roll round.
    Did an oil change and filters on the Patrol, vacuumed through the old girl and she's several kilograms lighter now. (Yes Bull I got rid of "The mobile sand dune" in Meningie at the car wash while Anne grabbed lunch at the bakery. )
    Good trip and covered some ground.

    Bill got a reaction from Northern Kites Australia in Beachracers on Sysmic rims - sold   
    SOLD
    A set of almost matching Kenda Beachracers on 4" wide sysmic rims.  Bearings are in good nic and there's still plenty of those rubber bits sticking out of the tires.  Two of the tires match and the third seems a little squatter - I always put that one on the front.....well, after I noticed they weren't all identical.....  Located Ballarat, central Vic.   Grace my palm with $350 and they're all yours.

    What better way to break a 7 month buggy drought than to give a 9.5m LS2 it's maiden voyage??  Pulled like a truck in 6 -8 knots and put a big smile on my dial.  Pretty responsive and easy to turn particularly considering how much depower I had pulled.  At one point I launched it in what must have been 2 - 3 knots and wasn't really expecting it to fly let alone pull the buggy - but it launched with ease and with some fig 8'ing got the buggy moving nicely up the beach.  Still haven't got the little 3.5m munchkin in the buggy yet.  Next time....Nearly out of therapy - this certainly helped.

    Bill reacted to Chook in Lake Lefroy Regatta   
    Been back to Lake Lefroy a couple of times in the last month pole dancing.
    Great surface and plenty of room to play.
    Had a thunderstorm go through just after I got there yesterday and this guy nailed a shot from the club shelter.
    You know their close when your carbon mast starts humming with static and there is an arc discharging across the mast join halfway up on Bryans yacht.
    15mm of rain and back sailing an hour later when the wind drove the water away. The surface is like glass all over.

    "BUGGER"    Pretty sticky on the edges though when I was packing up for the 31/2 hour trip home.
    Had 3mm rain a month ago when I was there as well and looked fantastic. My yacht on it's side to the left. Didn't stop the sailing as it's rock hard under 3mm of water.

    This is a replica of a 1907 Bleriot land yacht I built the sail for.

    Great mirror images.
