Wednesday 5th August - Windsurf ***** - The Manor at Felixstowe – sunny periods.


F2 282 Ride with Tushingham Lightning 6.5m and 38 fin.


Fin – 26.90 knot max, 24.49 knot ave., 17.48 knot hour (year PB), 20.38 knot mile, 46.17 km., 17.22 knot alpha.



For the second day in a row the wind was 20 knots from the SW, we had a choice of venues from Point clear to Levington but again decided to stay local and meet up with Neil Hurrell at The Manor just after 8.30 after dropping Mag off at the end of the prom. Neil rigged 6.9 and I rigged as yesterday, 6.5 on my 115 lt. while Felixstowe newcomer another Rob went for 7.3 as his smaller sail was being repaired and that was always going to be too big and sadly, he ended up with a bloodied face, hope he is OK! I was first out and again went for my usual none stop hour which in the end was over an hour and a half covering 28 miles:) I didn’t think it was overly fast as my legs ached from yesterdays long session but ended up with a seasons best of 17.48 so was well pleased:) I beat down the beach a groyne or two and found some smooth water close to  the beach and again out by the Wadgate post where the Manor break was working again. This is a nice long section of waves with smooth water to the left where I got some cracking gybes. When the sun came out it was as good as Felixstowe gets with a lovely sky which attracted several people to the beach. The wind was going a little patchy so I came ashore for a snack as it dropped to 9 knots, I stopped for awhile but the wind stayed light, I could have set up my foil but was knackered from two hectic session so decided to pack up and head for home and sods law came into play as the wind did eventually pick up but never mind as I have had two 5 Star sessions in a row. Then after lunch with Mag I did my exercises and dozed in the sunny back garden:) Looks like no wind now until some marginal N,Easterlies from Sunday, perhaps the bikes will have to come out again!
