I was on the water by 8.30 as we were helping a friend move in the afternoon.I used the same combination as yesterday 7.5 on the Xantos.I started with a quick blast in the river at the Ferry and thought I had made a mistake with the rig size as the wind was gusting 20 mph and I was abit overpowered.On the beat back the wind eased so I continued down the coast and made the old windsurfing hut end in 3/4 tight reaches going nearly 3 miles out to the shipping line to see a huge container ship go past !!! Some good reaches back passing another sailer out at the Fludgers,doing 26 miles in 1hr 47mins.By this time the wind had gone wsw and dropped.A couple of other windsurfers were rigging when I got back(including Neil Hurrell) but struggled in the lighter winds.Mag came down on her bike and we had breakfast and the the wind filled in and I had another hour doing a top speed of 24.7 spending 2hrs 44 mins on the water with an average moving time of 15 kts,which I thought was good as alot of the time I was beating.Mark S and Andy M had turned up spent ages rigging then were overpowered then it rained and the wind disappeared !!!! Another good day but as yesterday not many sailer about.
