looks like the wind may have a touch of NW in it tomorrow and windy earlier meaning boulmer will not be so good.(unable to sail out over the reef after about mid tide 11.00) could do a sail at dbay boat ramp/board walk or coquet island early and then head up for the barbeque. secret spot x may also work.

Hi Steve,

I'm tempted to take a run up and join you. Whats Druidge like in a NW?

I'd have thought Amble would be better in a NW?

Is that off the golf course Ross? Is it worth just coming to Boulmer, there is more wind forecast up your way that down here!

what about meeting at d-bay for 10-10.30am see what the wind strength and direction is doing, then we can decide as we have plenty of options for a sail. coquet island is better if it is NW but if it is more notherly d-bay boat ramp(should not go to dry on the reef at low tide) or board walk will be good. failing that secret spot x may be worth a look if it is in between these(NNW) more will be revealed only to those that are brave enough to try.

it is a difficult choice john if there is wind down your way and sailable i would stay close as there are no garantees.

spot x - on multi map just north of warkworth is a sandy beach with easy access to the beach and cross shore on a NNW, this may also work. could go there if d-bay and coquet island look poor.

We could take a look at DBay if the thought is that Boulmer will not be the best option will see what the morning brings

boulmer will not get any waves from mid to low(11.30 till about 4pm) and may be cross off and gusty. d-bay would be a good place to start from. boulmer is better at high tide for waves. the other beaches will be sailable with waves when this is not unfortunately.

I can probably get out for 10:30ish. Maybe best to start at D-bay and work our way up the coast 'til we find somewhere suitable.

latest forecasts now showing northerly so d-bay should be fine. will be there for about 10-10.30am and see from there.
