Distance Covered:

Took my time rigging to let wind settle down. Macello was flattening 4.5m and said wind would increase so whilst it looked 4.7m rigged 76l/4.2m which was perfect when I downhauled some more. Great fun gybing off logo rollers and wind carried all the way to shore. Chopped up for a short while otherwise good. 25 knots forecast, Cabezo read 29-34 knots gusting 32-39knots; reckon it was 30 so that's some more calibration.
After a good session wind dropped a bit, thought about packing up as good session but tried 4.7m which was good for 5 minutes until wind came back. Battled on and fun sailing on the edge but more tiring so packed up before I hurt myself or someone else as a few falling in and hard to spot until almost on top. Did a couple of jumps pleaed with though landed a bit flat on one, ouch.
