Not a brilliant session as the wind was very up-and-down, but fun none-the-less.

It was made more interesting because I wanted to try my new 6.4m Remedy in dodgy/marginal conditions anyway, so today was ideal. Outcome - it seems good! A very similar bottom-end feel to my old Retro, but with a much better top-end, so basically it seems like just what I was looking for.

Tried a few duck-gybes with not a lot of success, but was doing some bits a lot better. Also learned that moving your front hand right down the boom to the harness lines when waterstarting makes getting up in virtually no wind perfectly possible. I read this somewhere recently but didn't realise what a difference it would make!

Oh, and one of my toes went numb which is obviously a bad sign that the cold water season is coming :(
