Mauritius (by Colin Savage)

image
This July, once again I got up early on a Wednesday morning to catch a flight to Perth and then an eight-hour hop to Mauritius. Weeks of packing and repacking one board and rig and a ten metre roll of bubble wrap in preparation for 10 days on the paradise island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. This is my third trip there but it doesn’t make the decision of what size gear to take any less agonisi...

Weather Will Never Worry the Women on Windsurfers!

Women Windsurfers’ Event: Confessions of the Event Organisers It was raining in Melbourne as Fei and Lou - “the Event organisers” headed towards Inverloch for the Club’s third women’s windsurfing day.

Peter and Lari were also keen for a road trip so it became a Pit Crew adventure.  We left home at 5pm as Jen had work commitments and jus...

AUSTRALIA DAY SHANNIGANS

Australia Day 2013 on the Inlet.   What does Australia Day mean to you? For me Australia Day means celebrating everything that makes us “Fair Dinkum Aussies”. Sun, Sandy beaches, Snags on the BBQ, Beach Cricket, and the chance to share the day with great friends.   The day began with the traditional raising of the Aussie flag onto the Angling Club flagpole, and it was soon...
