I was on Canberra's Lake Burley Griffin, this arvo, a lake notorious for flukey winds.
The fleet was becalmed, except for me. I don't like dirty air, I'm always apart from the fleet.
A strip of wind the width of a roadway, 6 or 7 metres wide, came running down the lake, in a perfect orientation to one of the marks, lasted for minutes, it seemed as though one of the gods had sent it. The water was almost glassy on either side of this strip of wind.
Does a wind like this have a name? I have not ever seen such a phenomenon.
I wish I could have photographed the water's surface.
ps, This one good leg, was worth today's torment. Damn all Laser 4000's. I would be banned if I told you what I thought about Laser 5000.
