Hoped to go windsurf foiling for the first time this month but had to wait to the rain to pass and the wind to build, so I headed down to Felixstowe dock view point with our bright umbrella to take some weather pics to send to the TV but I am ot holding my breath! It was miserable for most of the morning, chilly too so I had plenty of time to do my exercises. The wind started to build around 11.30 so I headed down to Squiz Lane at 12.30 and with a sw gusting well over 20 knots I was tempted to set up my rarely used fin gear which probably was not my best idea as low water was gone 4 so it was wind with tide meaning you usually have to beat both ways just to staty in the same place! Still I headed out into a particularly lumpy sea with just enough wind to plan and went too broad o my first run, ending up several groynes downwind by the ferris wheel:( I then had a few runs out slowly making my way back, I forgot how exhausting fin sailing can be and will probably stick to foiling I the future especially as the sea was particularly lumpy, weedy too! The wind then turned a fraction off and picked up so I got back to my launch beach easily, just I time as the wind went even more off and dropped but at last I got a little sun as I packed up, not great, fingers crossed tomorrow will be better, fingers crossed!
