Today turned out to have some very unexpected wind!

Like Sunday (but a little less) there was *just* enough wind to get planing, and once going the Manta/7.5m combination doesn't really stop.

Great fun mainly because it was *such* light wind, once you take off it feels ridiculous to be locked-in and flying along. I was the only person out again in the whole bay and I sailed for about an hour until it dropped a tiny bit and I'd really had enough by then.

A couple of foil/wing-surfers went out a little bit after me, but neither of them could get up and foiling (perhaps they were just beginners?).

Very glad to have made the most of some seriously marginal conditions again! That really is it for the week though (according to the forecast anyway...).

Four stars again just because it was really fun having the whole of the bay to myself :)
