Again down at the Dip at 4 with Andy Mexome out on 7m and the sea still fairly flat but the tide was coming in now and the sea was only going to get worse :( By the time I had rigged the 7.5 and small slalom the sea was big !!! but there was still a small section of flat water behind a shingle bank in the R.Deben mouth.It was hard work beating up the river and then you had to sail though chop to the flat water :( The course was short too only 200/300 m but made 28kts the first run :) Then the runs got slower and slower as the tide broke over the shingle and it was knackering getting back upwind!!! I gave up in the end and had a hairy trip back to the Dip in the big sea !!! I had a few runs in the open sea but only made 25 kts and gave up with cold hands :)
