Lots out when I arrived. 85l/4.7m about right. Some swells and bit nicer by Golf but bit of a wind shadow. Sea messy big chop but smoothed a bit after high, when Mark S turned up and wind droped. tried 5.2m for a while, OK but wind dropped some more.

6.3 Simmer race - sailed Point Clear

Couldn't face a trip to a flat water spot at Southend or Point Clear and as my mate Neil was coming to Felixstowe decided to to stay at home for abit of bump and jump.Not my favourite style of sailing :( small sails and huge bumy sea !!! We missed the best of the conditions in the morning waiting for the rain to clear and then went for 5.6 on the 100 freeride which was okay.I set off to the kite beach down wind at the Deben river mouth where the conditions looked better with some rolling surf :) but it took me along time to get there and when I did broke my 4.30 mast so had to walk back to the van,have lunch and a big thank you to Peter Ling who bravely lent my a lovely carbon rdm which was brilliant :) I played about in the big waves for awhile before heading back.After a chat and with the tide very high the wind seemed to dip abit and I had the best few runs of the day and even manged to get afew gybes in - you would have thought that after nearly 30 years of winmdsurfing I would get the hang of turning around !!! I would probably had a better day at The Ray but the walk is a killer and it was good to catch up with several mates on the beach and we had four round for a top ,meal in the evening so Southend will have to wait for another time !!!

After the rain clouds went this was a great evening session in the sun with just my Dad and I blasting up and down the whole length of the south arm.
PB's for me on this size board so well chuffed I made the effort to come after nearly going straight home from work. The SSW wind direction meant there were some great broad reaches to be had between the Sailing Club Moorings and the Fishing Lodge.
Finished off nicely with Sirloin Steak and couple of pints in the bar overlooking the sunset!!
