      I had been eying this place off for several years and finally made it down there in April 2021.

      Recently I had met some the locals over at Lake George in SA and they mentioned what a great place this is for flat-water-blasting and speed sailing.

      The access and launch area at the yacht club are fabulous with minimal effort required to get blasting from the get-go.

      I was also impressed with the water quality and clarity given the bay has a silty muddy bottom.

      The day we sailed the wind came and went quickly (unfortunately) however we did get a taste of how good this spot is to sail.

      When it was blowing we had about 15 – 18 knots from the WNW and the water was super flat. getting onto the plane was so easy due to the flat water.

      Given the lake is shallow it was easy to stop and have a rest even way out in the middle and the silty bottom was firm enough that you could just beach start each time.

      We will definitely return to this place as another option to Inverloch and particularly during winter to sail the northerlies.
