9th May 2009
Windsurfing: The Fludgers-Felixstowe
Wind Direction: wsw
Wind Stength: 20/30
Surf / Sea State: short chop-crap
Air Temperature: 13
Sea Temperature: 10
Weather: sunny
Max Speed: 25.52 (knots - unless stated otherwise)
Distance Covered: 10.50 (Nautical Miles - unless stated otherwise)

I managed to be at the beach at just gone 4 and with the wind wsw The Fludgers is the only spot.But with the tide low it's a nightmare to launch over the rocks !!! The sailers already there were using sails up to 6.5 so I went with 6.6 and I was going to use the Falcon 90 for the first time but because of the rocks and the viscious short chop but went for the Xantos.Big mistake as I should have rigged 5 and gone out on the wave board but to be honest the conditions were so crap any board would have struggled !!! I had a few runs out and back being bounced about all over the place not being able to sheet in and gybing was next to impossible !!! It did calm down abit later but if this was windsurfing I would'nt do it !!! so I am amazed I did improve my pb but it was'nt much fun - oh for some flat water near and handy !!! A windsurfer who works at Felixstowe docks came down and said they were measuring 40 kts + on the cranes,no wonder I was having problems sheeting in !!!
