Managed to get out of work early to join Shane & Steve for a Sunday sail. Started with the JP which was a mistake, should have gone with the Sonic straight up. First attempt at an hour resulted in a lovely smackdown in a gybe, one of those what happened there moments. Board change & then had a couple of cracks at Norty's which was good fun.
Later in the day most of the Kiters had finished so had another go at the hour, this time I wished I was back on the big board as the wind had got a bit up & down Pretty happy with the result considering there was no NM at the start & I spent a bit of time on the grovel.
Way more fun than working

Forecast was for wind to build to 20knots but was only 16 at 1pm. Rather than rig for the forecast and get caught out yet again I rigged for the actual wind. Discussed options with Morts and we decided on alphas and hour and maybe a naughty. Wind got stronger and I knew I was in trouble ten minutes into the hour. Stopped after 30 minutes, left arm tired and left foot cramping. Pity as it was a great 30 minutes, 26+. Oh well save it for another day.
Fin outstanding, sail great but a little too much for me for the hour.
2nd alpha today was a PB, it felt good. Only last night I wrote on SB that I think I can do a 26 step gybe, got closer today.
Top 5 NM and a pb alpha. Great session. 8 top 5s so far this year and 2 pbs in 2017. Great year so far.
Great to be on the water with Jeremy, Shane and Cliff. 8 kites out meant that even if I had hung on or had the 6.3 up gybing at the south end was congested and may have been a problem for a great hour.
Grand classification 115
