An interesting day for uk speedsailing as people were out at 3 very different venues.
I plumped for Southend, possibly not the best decision, but we had a good day.

Cheers Whitey for the kit lend and showing me round your fave spot.
I borrowed Dave's 5.5 Vapour and Manta 46?

Conditions although being a lot of fun, weren't quite windy enough. The main part of the course was pretty square, and the broader far end a bit choppy, that's perhaps being a bit picky though.

It's a great spot and I'm sure it'll go off one day soon.

I hear the Kirby crew faired better wind wise?..

Best 500m run
