Todays aim was to get there eralier for a less ballaistic sail and maybe try for an hour..I'm surprised itt's as good as ity is as it included going too shallow 2 x and walking the board out + 2 failed gybes at the end when I was buggered.The wind direction pushed you out intto the çhop'so there were 10'- 1'rollers in the middle of each run..
Frothie & I started about 10.30. I went with the small board and it was nicely powered in the gusts but there were 300m lulls so I put the 87ltre on...didn'tt fix the lulls.. Decided to come in and wait for it to come in..We didn't have to wait long..On the first run I went in too far and had a long walk out..
I just didn't feel comfortable today. I was so tired i was sailing like a sack of spuds and the harness lines just didn't feel right..I fiddled around but just gave up and put it down to jetlag..zzz
I felt I was working all the time just to keep my position but it felt good at times. mmm..I think given good conditions I can aim for a 22kt hr...
Just Froth & I then Rod and a few others ..Glynn , Daffy etc all came after.
I ended up doing a bearaway to 5 mile and walking back to the car thinking I was finished but then Daffy suggested resting and trying for a 2 sec later..drove slowly back to the launch..( I took that distance off the results ).
It built too quickly and I really needed the 50ltre board ( that I don't have) so I gave it a miss..Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
