Blst on the tide for an hour

The forecast wind did not kick in until around 2pm and the angle was SW 236 deg so better port tack really.  I only have starboard asy fins so manged to do some runs at the top end of the course and getting peaks around 42kn but it was difficult to get 10sec runs in the short space.

Port Tack, a good day's sailing, despite the wind being up and down like a yo-yo.  By the end of the day, I needed a 5,8m and speedboard but to tired.

Wind looked good but gusty when I arrived in the morning, so rigged a 6.3m and xl speed board.  The wind disappeared as soon has got on the water. After an hour or two, I gave up and de-rigged the 6.3m and started rigging a 7.8m, wind returned but stronger. Re-rigged the 6.3m and got a few nice runs and started to settle in, but the wind continued to build and ended up being to strong for the 6.3m. Not enough day light left to rig a 5.7m so had to call if a day. Frustrating at times but still fun. Just me, Neil and Ant. First time in the 2012 6.3m, I like it!!
