How is the Water depth and Weed looking, have the floods cleared any of it out?

The storms and rain have cleared a significant amount of weed from the lake

I was at the club today and a lot of weed is on the shore.

We 're racing this weekend so I'll check the water out.

Updated this post with the details:

High tide Saturday 4th is 1.55m at 12.40pm (adjusted for the Lake not Forster Beach).

So that makes it close to ideal.

Awesome stuff Warren.

As always we look forward to a big fleet of F18's carving up the water.

As usual there wil be plenty of cold Bundy's sitting in ice for the late arrivals on Friday night.

Just had a committee meeting with The Big Bloke, he's off to buy more BEER for the F18's.

We look forward to the return of the F18s. Course design incorporates a separate windward/return section for spinnaker boats. All is in readiness. Bring on the easterly breezes and a stonker southerly for mad monday!

Great news, the Blade and some more F16's will be there for sure as long as all spinnaker boats are sailing together like last year. It was great fun!
