Same kit and similar conditions to tuesday but far more consistent. Sailed much beter today. Got some decent jybes and some reasonable speed in the chop. Plenty of shallow spots at either end to make things interesting and the tip of my fin is looking prety sad for it. Ignore the safety Bay wind meter, it is reading minimum of 5 knots over and probably up to 7.

Yeahargh, that was fun!

Late afterwork sail with the Stropp down at Toms first run almost 3/4 the way across the estuary before ending in a restart.

Lots of good runs which unfortunately ended bizzarrely when climbing back on the board I bumped my harness release which subsequently had my harness heading for my knees, which in itsaelf wouldn't be a problem except my broken crotch which feels like siatica except in the crotch was going of like a frog in a sock whilst I was contorting myself tring to get the harness sorted.

Still it was a great session, thank goodness for this foiling malarky as even with my big girl I doubt whether I'd be sailing anywhere near as much.

Woo hoo

Nice going Roger.

I had a great wave sail here, got planing a few times, but enough wind to comfortably lean back in the harness and plod upwind. Then a few pumps and your on a wave, from waist to one about half mast. Smacked plenty of lips at the 3rd break, but came unstuck when I sailed up to the 2nd break. Found a huge wind shadow just inside the impact zone. couldn't even fly the sail, had to swim the board back to the wind line, fortunately none of the bigger waves actually broke on me, but a couple were worringly close. With the low tide, there was nothing behind me but shallow reef, I didn't fancy getting washed on to me. So once I managed to water start promptly headed back to the 3rd break, where there's a nice long gap in the reef and hardly any wind shadow.

Sounds nice Mike apart from the swimming bit. Certainly a great day to be outside and on the water.
