I am new here and am having problems posting to this forum. I logged in but it said that I was not authorised to view this forum so could reply to Ellens thread. I have added my response below. Hopefully this will work.

Anyone with reports of warm sailing please post something for those of us in colder areas to read!
I have had a few good sessions lately (on the Sunshine Coast in sunny Queensland Australia) including a speed event last month (link below with some pictures if anyone is interested) with great wind and lovely warm water and air temp. I started the day just wearing shorts and rashie, but it did cool down later in the day and I had to wear a 2mm wetsuit.
It is now approaching our winter, although you can hardly call it winter here with the average temp still about 21-23C and sunny and warm conditions.
