After some early morning car-hassles I finally got to Pevensey around 4:20pm, pretty much as everyone was packing up for the day. The "word on the beach" was that the wind was very up and down, so it was hard to know what to rig.

I chose to be optimistic and went for the Evo74/5.4m combination, which was nice for the first 1/2hr, but then the wind tailed right off and it got a bit marginal.

I would usually have stuck with it, but I had a new toy in the car to try (Remedy 6.4m), so I headed in to change board and sail. Of course as soon as I'd rigged up, the wind came back to 5.4m weather, just as had been predicted by the others on the beach!

Anyway, I wanted to try the new sail overpowered and underpowered, so this was a chance (perhaps) for the former. Had a good sail actually - just me and one other out at that stage, and I'm glad to say that I wasn't ever overpowered, even though you could really feel and hear the gusts coming through. A really nice sail, although perhaps not *quite* as super-stable and easy as the Matrix (very little in it though), but I'm hoping the bottom-end will more than make up for it.

So, a big thumbs up for the brief evening session, the new toy, and more importantly the amazing weather (still)!
