  • Dekker's Circumnavigation Nears End

    Dekker's Circumnavigation Nears End

Guppy is enjoying herself in the wind as she is charging through the waves at a good 6,5 knots eating down the miles to Sintt Maarten with 1450 nautical miles left to...

    Lake Macquarie in the New South Wales Region of Australia just played host to the Aussie A-Cat Nationals, and is Australia's largest saltwater lake.

    Surfing The West Shore!

    If it's December 1st and you don't have enough snow to play in, then "Go Jump in the Lake!"

    East winds on Lake Tahoe gusting to 40 knot have made for "surfable" conditions along the Westshore.
    Water temps in the 40's and air temps in the 30's makes for a " Breath Taking" session for sure.
