Hey Science, huge thanks.
Huge thanks to everyone talking up the front this weekend as well, you guys ROCK
Everyone seemd to be down at Toms and on the water by about 10, Muggin's had to piut out the hard waste for the seagulls to pick over and do the shopping so I didn't hit the water til 1420everyone seemed to be on big gear, I wasn't going to as it looked a lot stronger, fortunately I saw Strop chugging a bit which got me to choose the right sail.
Twas fun runs just sailing across the estuary on a V-high tide, you felt the bulllets which gave some control practise, only one unplanned dismount on my first return leg, breached the foil came down and the board gripped the rail leaving yours truely a tad of balanced with the end result of a dunkin.
Other than that it was all golden apart from sailing with a thumper of a headache, which ended up being my reason for coming in as I felt it was affecting my normal lack of coordination.
Tried a different dismount at the end of the session as I came into shore a bit hot and flying not wanting to A) hit the bottom and crash, B) wash of speed by crashing C) just crash I decided to wash of speed by doing a jump (yes it was deliberate) which prooved to be the perfect way to wash of speed crash and amuse the hell out of Stroppo and Noel who got front row seats.
