Ricketts Point South (Victoria, Australia)
Ricketts Point South is in front of the Beaumaris Lifesaving Club on the east side of Port Phillip Bay near Melbourne.
This spot pumps in a westerly where the water is protected by a reef keeping the water relatively flat with the possibility of hitting the waves breaking on the reef making it good for flat water sailing & wave jumping.
It also works in an E and SE breeze where the water can get quite rough producing some good chop/waves for jumping.
Sometimes easier to rig up on the road and carry gear down the stairs at the E end of the beach in an SE.
The Reef here runs out on the Northern end of the beach then hooks around and runs across the beach a few hundred meters offshore.
It is pretty safe at high tide unless you venture too far north. A good rule is not sail further north than the no boating mark in front of the life saving club.
At low tide you have to be a more careful of the section of offshore reef that hooks around. It is pretty visible so just steer-clear of the breaking waves.
