20 knots and rising!
dk
05/25/2010, port philip bay

we love the days when the forecast is for up to 20 knots and during the course of the day it may soar well above 26 knots keeping you on your toes. this is one of those days characteristic of the bay and paul is having a great time with jb.

running around moored ships!

out for a day sail in the bay and it was the first time that we had to navigate around a few moored ships - this is one of the large 'car ferries' fondly referred to as a ro-ro. they look like large bricks, you wonder how they sail when above the waterline they look like this!

we were heading up to docklands in melbourne when we saw this interesting site.

after some debate and wild guesses we worked out that the shrink-wrapped monster was in fact 'Elvis' the large water bombing helicopter that comes to Australia for our summer season.
packed and ready for the trip to the US?

day sailing in port philip bay

04/10/2010, melbourne

lots of days sails in port philip bay, deanne at the helm heading back to RBYC.
great sailing as we sailed in the direction of Altona, picked up a super 20 knots from a calm 10kn as the 'nth westerlies' swept across from Werribee and Williamstown. managed to race with a cruiser as she made her way to RVYC - and yes we were a boat length ahead!! irony is we were just working our sail trim to get comfortable let alone race!
