Long time between drinks. This was my first session since July, and after resting an ankle injury for 8 weeks. Wind was light but enough to be planing the whole time comfortably at least. Happy to get out for an hour without going for a swim - this part was important seeing as I left the wetsuit at home and only had the shorts I wore to work to sail in! Chilly!!!

The wind didn't come in as much as I had expected but still an enjoyable session on the swan enjoying the sun. Good to catch up with Boz who was working hard to get the little board on the plane in light wind.

got away from work early enough to make my way down to the river and make the most of such a lovely day
I struggled a little more than normal to pick a combo as it probably wasn't quite as consistent as a full summer seabreeze
made a bit of a guess and it was the right gear to start with but the wind just slowly faded and I was a little underdone for the majority of the sesh but hey still foiling so I was still smiling
so it turned out to be a very pleasant cruisy sesh, can't complain about that

in hindsight I got the rig right but I should have been on the big wing
amazing speeds from the little wing even when underpowered but as you might quess jybing the little wing at low speed is unbelievably difficult, I did get one alright one but mustn't have made proximity
all up very happy and still smiling, all the slogging slappa's at peli point were probably getting sick of me buzzing around with such a big smile

Wind looked promising by the time I had arrived. Sailed down to Peli point powered up but on the way back the wind started to gradually lighten to nothing. By that time i was only at the kiters beach so I ended up doing the longest walk of shame I can remember. Well at least I didnt walk it alone and like Nick said atleast it wasnt a swim of shame or a tow of shame.

Got down there when it was blowing about 16 knots, but dropped off as I was rigging.
Interesting in as much as I had plenty of time to check out my very slowest planing speed, was around 13 knots.

It is a pity to travel all this was and get less wind and sun than I would have at home.
The forecast is dismal for the next few days so while there was some wind (about 5 knots) I decided to get out on the water anyway. Still more fun than SUPing.
I worked upwind and was very disappointed when the wind dropped out entirely then swung more than 90 degrees and I had to work upwind again to get home.
No top speeds, probably some PWs, but lots of tacking practice.
I had a screenshot of tracks but this comuter won't let me post them.
