With nowhere fast working for me within easy driving and the wind offshore at Felixtowe Mag and I went for breakfast at Levington and ended up sailing all day finially leaving at 5.30 !!! With wind gusting to 20 mph I started with the Fanatic Falcon 90 with the x - 15 7m but it was a real struggle in the up and down winds after walking through the mud to the water :( I then tried the Isonic 135 but did'nt seem to like the 7m and the 50 cm fin was too big and I did loose it when coming ashore when it sheared off !!! So out came the 1996 F2 Xantos :) as this seems the best board to suit the choppy condtions !!! At dinner time just as I had had enough of trying to find some flat water along the far bank toward Felixstowe docks but the wind was always lightest there :( and then you had to sail back in the gusty winds into 2/3 feet of chop :(
I was about to pack up but decided to stay and sail with my mates and the conditions improved :) The wind steadied abit and the sun even came out on and off as well,then the sky darkened and it started to rain and a good squall came through and I was in the right place at the right time and had a mega run down the far bank in flatish water in the poor visibility and was just shy of 30 kts !!! but still my best speed locally :) I then had a good hour just trying to improve my alpha's and was disappointed not to break 20 kts !!!
So a good day making the most of the local conditions,oh for an easy flat water venue near and handy !!!
