8th June 2017
Windsurfing: Felixstowe Dip
Wind Direction: SW
Wind Stength: 20/25 kts
Surf / Sea State: large swell rough
Air Temperature: warmish
Sea Temperature: warm
Weather: cloudy sunny
Max Speed: 24.2 (knots - unless stated otherwise)
Distance Covered: 14.3 (Nautical Miles - unless stated otherwise)

Haven't sailed for 3 weeks so knew it would be a hard sail. 2 out on arrival at 2pm, tide going out and with wind. It was rough on arrival but improved time I rigged. The guys were on 4.7 and 5m so went with 6.2 hellcat/ 111L JP Magic ride pro as it measured 20kts on my gauge. Waves were rolling in but the sea was confused and a little light in shore but windy near the buoys. I didn't dare sheet in near the buoys as very rough. In fact I didn't sheet in most of the session as gusts were prob 25+ so didn't want any speed. I wasn't comfortable and getting wet most gybes, so getting very tired. Windsurf fitness relies time on water I think, not gyms, so I was knackered after 4 runs. Andy M, Paul D relished the conditions and were going well so was Simon and Nath. Ian turned up with Swainey later and milked it on 6.0. It was a little lighter and the sea looked better (always does when looking from shore eh!). It was a nice sail, but prefer it flatter, although lots of swell to gybe off on the outer. Didn't do any speed runs just run down wave faces and thru troughs. Not bad
