What a month August has been !!! my best month so far for sessions :) Back to The Dip today so after breakfast with Mag and the Hurrells rigged my big freeride kit in the sunshine and onshore breeze, in the beginning 7.5 was abit big but because you could sail along the waves in a big sea and I was beating and broad reaching it was fine. After a few runs along kite beach I headed down the coast beating just past the peir, had a quick rest put the boom higher and released the outhaul and set off really really broad back :) I seemed way underpowered but managed a 24 kt n/mile so must have been going okay !!! I landed on the shingle bar in the Deben rivermouth to watch the kiters and then had some runs aross Bawdsey Bay where I got my months top speed of 27kts - top fast in flat water terms but not bad for Felixstowe :) It was then back ashore for a quick lunch - Mag and Linda were still chatting in the van and out again to enjoy the waves, sailing across the bumpy/wild rivermouth loads of times :) , I even sailed into the river in search of flat water but in this direction the runs are very short :( The wind had eased now and so I called it aday and for a change was one of the first to leave !!! Again the kiters outnumbered us poor old windsurfers about 3 to 1 :( Another top day !!!
