As I couldn't do any pond sailing at West Kirby :( I will make it one day !!! I had do to the next best thing get up early to make the most of the sunshine and take the longboard out for a cruise !!! So at 8.15 I set off from The Dip beating up to the other side of the peir well powered up with 8.5 in a lumpy sea.A quick stop on the beach for a few adjustments then a three and a half mile broad reach straight into the sun - about as much fun as you can have on a windsurfer and worth a five star session on this run alone !!! I then reached into the Deben and sailed as far as Ramsholt corner to see if I could find some wind and flat water - I found the flat water sadly no wind :( I then had the interesting beat out of the river only just making against the strong incoming tide !!! I had a few runs in Bawdsey Bay and returned to The Dip with the idea of packing up but Darren T turned up and the wind swung ssw - cross shore so I rigged 6.6 and took out the F2 Wizzard.I was way powered powered so changed to 5.6 and spent a hour battling the bumps !!! This is not the sailing I like sailing unpowered in lumpy seas,the wind was up and down and the chop had chop :( and as for the weather it was crap,cloudy and heavy rain and with the tide turning staying upwind was hard so time to pack up - shame Mark Smalling didn't come in five minutes earlier as he lost the wind and ended up on kite beach and had the long walk of shame !!!
