      This was my first visit & I left with the impression that it was a good spot for slalom windsurfing in NW to NE wind directions & it could even be good in SW. While the wind was still gusty, it was far less so than it would have been in Port Phillip Bay, the water smoother & chop direction more comfortable.
      My favourite place to sail was in the middle, around the area of the shipping channel, where the wind felt stronger & more consistent, the water clearer & containing less weed.
      It would be an advantage to have a weed fin; my slalom fins frequently got clogged with weed, causing a lot of drag & spinouts.

      We windsurfed here on a 38 degree day with a NNE breeze gusting from 12 to 29 knots. The wind was hot so seriously lacked punch. However when the wind got up it was serious fun blasting across the flat water at this spot. Whilst the wind was gusty it didn’t tend to come in bullets but rather dropped out and then you could see the gusts coming across the water which gently picked up.

      On the downside for windsurfers, as the tide goes out so does the water and you have to walk about 50 – 100 m in soft weed to get to deep enough water (unless you have small fins on your board). There was also quite a bit of weed floating in the bay so getting weed tangled around a slalom fin was a bit of an issue. A raked fin is definitely more advantageous here.

      I didn’t wear booties here however I did feel a bit insecure walking out in the weed/mud. I think booties a good idea particularly for windsurfers having to walk out a bit to the deeper water.

      The rigging area has a few good grassy areas and the beach is a mix of sand and shells. There is a reasonable amount of parking and you don’t have to cart your gear more than a few metres. There are also public toilets and dogs are allowed off-lead however please pick up your dog’s poo as there was quite a bit of it around the area.

      If you are looking to blast across flat water on a northerly breeze this is a spot worth a look just 1.5 hours drive south of Melbourne.

      For kitesurfers this is would be a brilliant spot and would probably increase the overall rating to 4/5.
