Think of the extra height they would have achieved if they had taken out the reef in the main and put up a full genoa!

Close, but your wrong It's clearly going UP

Therefore I conclude that it's the moment just prior to an alien abduction.

Good advice, but difficult to put into practise on the WBB. The dangerous part of that bar is far too long for anything short of a planing powerboat to get in (or out) during the lull between waves.

I should make it clear, they are not my words/advice. They come from the website quoted. I am of the view of everybody else who has commented, once you commit to wide bay bar you are exactly that, committed. Not one of my favourite places.

Great photo, though. I came across it years ago, and stashed it away. When I saw the first post in this thread, with photo, I immediately thought of wide bay bar.
