The pouring rain and wind direction made Bramblebush unentertaining, so with the weather deterring most guests, we tried the National Trust Knoll Beach spot together with Steve and Leuda - and it was great! It was abandoned, almost, thanks to the weather and there is a nice shape to the beach and it is sandy and had the potential for little wavelets, so it was nice. The cafe is handy! Highly recommended for another visit, it was lovely in the SW.

Grateful for a break in the downpour, Bramblebush was a lovely enticing place, and uncharacteristically abandoned due to the poor weather on saturday and in surrounding areas. We had a lovely day with Connar and Justin and STeve and Leuda, and Jim the SUP/surfer and Tim visiting from Australia. The square and compass the night before was lively and there was some hangover in the air, and it was Leuda's birthday!!!! only 18 again... Justin got almost all his toys out, enjoying the SUP and then the 10.4m and a big board. We loved testing our new SUP and the boys all played together in the shallows on their boogeyboards and with water pistols. The 6.9 caned the 10.4!!! Tim had a go playing on British flatwater and seemed to enjoy it.

What a weekend for Tim to visit the UK - he must have been well impressed ;).

Bet it put those Sydney conditions to shame - ha ha ha!!

I will admit it! Aussie sailors are soft and spoiled. You guys sail in extremes!! Super strong winds, driving rain, beaches full of stones .... how do you do it?

Its rather perverse Tim because out of all of us, Gen (an Ozzy) is probably the toughest of the lot - hard as nails that girl!!! Had three kids in the morning, went windsurfing in the afternoon - put another tinny on the barbie mate...

Puts us poms to shame!!

Caught up with the OMC at Bramblebush bay and was kindly lent some big kit for a slalom sail in lightish winds. Got some nice planning runs in super flat water on a nice JP/NP combo. I had forgotten how nice it is to be fully powered and hanging onto a big sail in 11knts!! Unfortunately I left to catch the Andy Murray final on the tele and missed the westerly front that came in later in the afternoon. My only issue - those beach pebbles are really sharp!
Oh, that Square Compass Inn is fantastic
