First attempt at a session on the eastern course.

Unfortunately the wind wasn't playing ball today and it felt difficult to get any decent speeds. We waited two hours for enough wind to launch and apart from the odd 25-30 knot gust it didn't really kick in until the eastern course was underwater at noon.

Sailing back felt really tough as the wind was gusting 35-40 knots and I was all out of energy. Once back at the beach it was regularly gusting over 40 knots. It often seems to arrive late!

Positives: It was good to be on the water, nice to put a face to a name (David Willows), great to try out the Evo V (super-awesome) and good practice for the next windy day!

Best 500m run
