Went early as too much forcast later. Good fun but overpowered in 40knot gusts by harbour wall. No waves either so came back into Bay. Amazed gybes came off in winds but sea a bit messy. Cleaned up as tide dropped but too windy. Rode one wave inshore but too gusty and strong there. Kiters doing huge jumps. Almost forgot, a high cloud of red sand passed Infront of the sun and made the around me sparkle gold.
If I don't sneak a sail in tomorrow before leaving I sailed 43 out of 88 days. Used 85l board 22 times and 95l 28, 4.2m (13), 4.7m (12), 5.3m (15), 6.1m (13). About half of the 4.2m days would have been better on 3.7m and mabe half of the 6.1m dsys better on 6.5/7m and a freeride board. There were also maybe 8 days when it was either too windy, not windy enough or I was ill for a few days. Happy with that.
