Where is the wind?

I was hoping for more wind than this. 10-15 knots and quite southerly at the mo. Not enough for me. Guess I'll have to go for a surf ski paddle instead.

That may have done the trick.... 5 mins after posting and it's now 20 knots... Just another 5 knots to go and it'll be worth going for a windsurf.

I ll come down to have a look and see what the situation is Al

Just got back from a 90 minute paddle on the estuary. Lots of rain and quite windy but still not howling.

It always feels windier in the ski as it is pretty unstable at the best of times so any chop makes it a challenge. Hardest part is carrying a 6.2m long wind-catching piece of fibreglass up and down the beach and then getting onto and off the camper. All done though and a decent session.

Coffee, cake and then a run I think. Hill reps up and down the Clettwr Valley for me.

If it fills in properly later I might go for a windsurf.

Have fun.

Good stuff Al sounds like a bit of work setting that up! Glad you had a good session..I do not get out as wind was not great...I m not too sure what's being going with forecast in the last year...wind forecasted to 20-30knots and barely any showing...

Yeah, story of our lives... Sounding a little better out there this morning. I'll pop ovr once it's light and take a look. Hoping to get an earlyish windsurf session in and then head into the hills on a bike.

20 + in the estuary with 40knots gusts..looks inviting... how cold does it feel there Alan if you are about? Tomorrow looks the same with very low temperatures but sun and wind...
