What a lovely day - wall to wall sunshine - a nice breeze and low water making the Felixstowe speed strip work, a bit chilly though only 15 degrees with a cold North sea :( With low not until 3ish I was in no hurry to get too The Dip, Mag and I arrived at eleven had a drink before she walked home and I rigged up 7.5 on the 133 lt. and 6.4 on the 100 lt. Chris Stephens arrived and rigged 6m so I decided to start with the big kit and stuck with it all day. After a few runs in the open sea I beat up into the River Deben to sail behind the shingle bar, to be perfect I needed more east and a stronger wind but still had great time - well over two hours gradually increasing my times as I found the windy spot - just missing out on 30 knots !!! You had to be very careful as the river is fairly narrow and very shallow in places and getting back upwind is slow going against the strong current !!! I was joined by speed buddy Peter Cutts and loads of turns :) Now starving I had two long broad reaches back for a bit to eat before having another hour in the bumpy open sea with loads of mates - great day :)
