Off at Dip and x-on at Fludyers so met Peter Strawb there. Felt windier
than it looked so rigged 76l/4.7m, and used bigger 25cm fin as wind with
tide.Well powered up and as wind climbed adjusted a few times until
depowered as much as I could. 4.2m would have been fine at times.
Big chop but OK as some rollers too which were good to turn off and gave
some shelter for turns in a couple of squalls which were overpowering
touching F7 at times. Went about 50 metres past blue kiosk to lessen effect
of current, and had no trouble keeping up wind. Nice turns on rollers.
Roger turned up but had too big a board and 5m which was too much most of
the time. Super 1.5 hours on the water before back ached and tired.
