Fun day at West Kirby with a great showing of English Speed addicts. We all were a little unlucky the wind did''t fill in as promised but still it was a great day. I brought my bussy John hoping he could smash his personal best but the wind just wasn't there for him to do it plus he had a little difficluties with the angle. Still I think he loved the sailing.

I did some nice fin testing waiting for the big winds to arrrive later but they didn't. the ASY 19 I started out with  was too small for the light winds. I later used the Weed Speed 20 to test how it would handle the runs bearing off into the chop and it went great. The second up till 5th fastest runs werre srt with that one. When I switched to the ASY 22 the wind got better for a while but dropped again I got in one nice run on it and could really feel the power and trust it gave. I got to see Oisin who posted the articles in boardseeker (thanks for that mate!)  and met some new guys I didn't meet before so all in all a pleasant day and a worthwhile trip to start the year.

Thanks guys and for sure see you later this year as grandpa John needs to feel how West Kitrby really can be like :-)
