My first session of the year !!! so after the rain had stopped and the sun
came out and with a balmy 7 degrees it was too good an opportunity to
miss.With the wind being slightly off the Fludgers was the best bet and
with 1/2 a doz on the beach it was great to sail in company with much talk
on the beach about their planned trip to Tarifa later in the year !!! The
hours sailing was good in the flatish sea although falling in took the
breath away as the sea was v.cold.
I started the day having breafast with Mag at Levington at low water to see
it's speed potential which would be good in this direction if you are
prepared to walk through a few hundred metres of mud,so I will give it go
when it is abit windier and warmer !!!
Lastly this is the first time I windsurfed with the new van and the diesel
heater was worth every penny !!!
