Can't believe I went really - raining and cold and am not keen on sailing in the rain in the milder times !!! I couldn't face a shortboard session on Felixstowe seafront so went out on the longboard at Levington again.It seemed quite breezy when I rigged and launched from the Marina entrance at nearly high water.Sadly the wind was too light for planing so headed up river on a beat and made it to the Orwell Bridge in one tack, just over 5 miles !!! I was not the only one out in the cold drizzle as there was racing at both Levington and Woolverstone and I even waved at the air/sea rescue helicopter as it flow over :) So after sailing under the huge bridge which never fails to get the heart racing headed back to Levington and the wind seemed to have swing more south making it a beat back too !!!! I was please to get back to my van as my hands were frozen :( Diesel heater one and snacks by which time there was a little more breeze so I headed out to try and break 20 kts - not much of a target I know but wind light and very gusty.I just managed a 23 max and a 20 ave and discovered ssw not a good direction for Levington.I didn't miss much at The Dip my mate Steve C the only windsurfer out with 7 kiters even if he had abit more wind, it was no warmer :(
