Gusty horrible flat-water gheyness...

Couldn't really sail anywhere else due to the wind direction, so Aldeburgh it was. Tricky selecting sail size - there were guys on the water with between 4.7m and 7m sails, all underpowered in the lulls and overpowered in the gusts! I went for a 5.4m, which seemed like a good compromise, and probably the right choice (if there was such a thing!).

Not sure the Evo is really a flat-water blasting board(!), but it was as fast/faster as some old slalom-style boards out there!

An annoying session really, but warmer than expected and as ever better than doing nothing. Oh, and there was a horrible smell of shit.
