Does anyone know (I should have known it by now!!) if at very low tide the channel between ynyslas and aberdify can be sailed (kite) on
Yes it can, but the main channel itself is quite small at low tide so you wouldn't have much of a reach to sail in... The channel on
the Ynyslas side is a better bet as it runs in a more N-S direction so gives you a longer reach at low tide.
The currents can get quite strong too, but if it's wind against tide that can actually give you an extra few knots of apparent wind.
Thanks Alan, i think I will not risk losing my board and will play in the bigger area at higher tide. Did you get out, it was blowing very hard today! Planning to get out tomorrow afternoon if it keeps blowing
No, I was working and have a race on Sunday so don't want to risk injury!! It's been blowing a hoolie though.
You'd be fine in the channel. I used to windsurf in it all the time.
Thanks Al I shall give a go, its been a good couple of days, we are lucky with the estuary
