Sunday Sail

Arrived mid afternoon delighted to find it blowing a solid 5-6 despite next to no wind at home in Droitwich 10miles south...apparently it had been gusting to 8 earlier. At last a chance to get on the Flow in ideal conditions.

Thought 6.8 was going to be too much so rigged with loads of downhaul.

Screamed across lake on first run - into harness+straps no problem. Attempted gybe and noticed it's much keener to do so than Techno. Fell in a lot, waterstarted a lot! Front foot heel seemed to be catching the water too when planing. Wind reduced after 30mins with just a few gusts to plane on. Should have changed to Techno+8m but time didn't allow so spent rest of time ploughing rather than planing.

Went home v.pleased to get out on Flow at last (12 months after purchase!)..... I can sail it!

Toys Used:
Mistral Custom Flow 276
Arrows Burner 6.8
Neil Pryde CK35 450 (cut down 460!)
