Speed Week, Speed Week!!

No Rosebud kite fest this year, so we could have three days hooning on the beach over Labor Day long weekend?? March 6th-8th.

Sandy Point tides are great, low tide, Saturday 12:01pm, Sunday 12:48pm, and Monday 1:39pm.

Only issue is going to be accommodation. Most places will be booked, or very pricey.

Otherwise we just wait for the weather to be right and do day trips, if it ever gets right?

 

Or cause some chaos and hit Dingley with a stack of wind toys one day over the long weekend?

After a fabulous time over in SA, we've both got the feel again to be back in the buggy and blofly. With the COVID situation settling here in Victoria, what about re-booting a speed week? Thoughts?

I just sent an email to the real estate agent for a house for the family, we will be there :)

So, who's thinking about heading down to Sandy Point this long weekend? 

Given the current forecast, i'm heading down on Friday for low tide and stay for the day. Then I will consider going back on Monday if the forecast holds. Sat and Sun doesn't look promising with offshore winds currently predicted.

Had a great solo run today at Sandy Point. Consistent on-shore all day 15-20 knots at the start and then backed off towards the end of the session. Cloudy day, but the sun made several appearances which made it even more enjoyable. Should have enough footage to throw a cheeky edit together over the weekend.

Sorry Mark, I did t see you’re post. Looks like you had fun. What’s the camping situation down there now. The park was planning to sell off the camping area.

Hi Mez, there were few tents propped up at the Caravan park . I didn't go and have a good look, but doesn't appear to be any movement so far.

      I am heading up to northern NSW next week spending some time between Mylstrom/Urunga and Coffs Harbour. May get up to Byron Bay. North Beach looks promising from Google earth. I appreciate winter winds are not ideal and have not checked tides yet. However, just wondered if anybody can recommend locations in that area for buggying - is it worth me taking my kit?
