Had the most wonderful weekend :) firstly biking in Thetford Forest and walking on the beach at Well with not a breath of wind and not a clould in the sky on Saturday.Then on Sunday wake to 20 kt north winds and no sign of the sun. Arrived at the carpark at Wells for breakfast at 9 to find the carpark filling up already and still no sign of any water !!! With the wind gauge reading winds between 17 an 24 kts went with the 6.4 and big fin but might have been better with the smaller fin or bigger sail !!! but as really flat water was hard to find I don't think it made alot of difference.Spent alot of time trying some fast runs on the far side of the channel in front of the lifeboat shed ,speeds were okay but nothing special but it was lumpy :( I then had a beat out in the open sea and had a play in the rolling surf with the wave sailers out with 5m sails,abit underpowered by now :( So three hours out with up to 50 other windsurfers - thats the most I've seen for years even if the average age was 50 !!! A top spot even if this direction is not great for speed,will take the wave board mext time !!! Also the people were so'oooo friendly - so next time you Felixstowe sailers get a n to nw and can't sail at Felixstowe it's worth the trip up to North Norfolk for a day of a mix of surf and flatwater sailing making sure you have a midday tide first !!!!
