Pleasant sail in some confused chop at Cott, tried the Manta 116 first and as the wind picked up switched to the 98, very bumpy ride but a lot of fun.

Fun session, more wind than expected. Managed a couple of planing gybes, one it the chop, big surprise.

You win some, you lose some and today was a loss. Amazing how things can turn around in a few days - Sunday where everything felt perfectly balanced and I was zooming around having fun and scoring PBs, then today when nothing felt right. I moved the mast foot, changed fins, altered the boom height - and never felt balanced. In the end the wind picked up so much I couldn't even sheet in over the sandbar and then close to shore hardly anything, so I decided to call it a day.
I probably got there a bit early - about 2.30 - went straight from work - 8-15 kn as I was rigging, very hot and fluffy with only 15 forecast so I went with my big gear, but later the wind filled in to 20+. It probably would have been better to wait until later in the afternoon. Suprisingly I feel quite fatigued and sore after only 5 km. Maybe I hadn't fully recovered from Sunday's big session yet.
