Between wind, at SE, tide and current all against us a wee while back the 20Kn wind felt the worst paddle home ever not long ago......... and I've paddled in much stronger winds.

Fizzing at the bung :geek:

Staying up at Snells beach with friends to get me closer to the action, hope the SE stays down. Saturday doesn't look too bad - Sunday might be the day for anchoring in the lee of a headland and burleying up I reckon. See yous at the briefing.
