      I sailed here in late November 2022 on a Severne Fox 105 with 7.5m freeride sail.

      I launched from Palm Beach which is a really nice spot with a grassy rigging area and sandy beach. There are car parks adjacent to the rigging area so you can rig right in front of your vehicle. The walk out in the shallow water is also sandy and I only had to walk about 10m from shore to get going. Further out the bottom was very weedy but deep enough not to catch on the fin. In fact I believe this spot would also work well for foilers as it is neck deep about 50 – 100 m from shore.

      The water was surprisingly clean with a brown tinge and the temperature was like a bath.

      When I arrived the wind was blowing a solid 20 knots rom the SE. Unfortunately by the time I rigged it had dropped off quite a but and became very gusty and full of holes. Even when the wind was blowing the chop was minimal. So needless to say my session was a bit frustrating.

      Overall I liked this spot and I felt safe sailing without anyone else out on the water.
