As I haven’t been out windsurfing since August 23rd I was keen to get out today as we have been away in our campervan having a great time in Essex before seeing the new Grandson:) With the wind in the west and giving blood at 3.05 Levington was the only option but the tide was really good coming in all of the session. I arrived at the marina with loads of water but not much wind so rigged big. I set off toward the dock but not enough wind so switched to beating up the Orwell with the aim to get to the bridge. Sadly the wind was too light and I gave up at the lovely Pin Mill but there are now a huge amount of waders on the river which is always great to see:) I planed in patches on the way back and on reaching the corner I caught a few gusts and broke 20 knots so I tried a run to the docks overtaking the tourist boat from Ipswich on the way. I landed at Shotely to watch the diving Turns before beating back. The wind increased a little so I beat up the river a little way but by the time I turned it had dropped so decided to call it a day, nice to be out windsurfing again, shame the wind didn’t play ball! Some wind forecast over the next week so should be able to get out again soon:)
