Tide until midday, so morning sail today. Wind still indecisive at 10am, so took middle ground of 6.5 Ezzy and 112 Fanatic FSW. Quite rough and hard work but plenty of jumpable ramps and wave faces to gybe on. Had a ball. Wind was consistent 20+ by the time the tide ran out. Sandbanks have shifted so probably 1/2 hour of really good speed sailing out there with the right fin. Too knackered to care by that stage.

Just Merena and me out. Wind was a bit up and down. Squall came through just after the second bank went under. Wind went almost due east, bottom bank was virtually dead down wind so no good for nautical mile.

was raining on the way out to Holloways so wasn't sure what to expect.....no wind or full on as it had been at home.
Arrived to see Billy and Benny had set up and were waiting for a squall to pass.
Wind was up and down with big holes and blowing southerly,westerly,easterly etc. the water was rough maybe this was going to be
a short session. Used a different boom with different harness lines so spent some time sorting out a comfortable position.!!
Benny deserves a pat on the back for todays effort hanging on to a 7.8 sail on a 135 litre plus board great effort and
his passion for sailing is incredable.......every session he puts in 100%.

Fun session with B1 & Freddo in squally gusty S..SWS..SESW..W..SSW..S blumpy chocolate milkshake conditions. Freddo sailed really well today taking home the chocolates.
Felt a bit iffy about the wind strength holding up today so rigged the ol' Exo 135 big board with Severne 7.8 OD & 47.5 BP fin- in hindsight, smaller board would have performed much better.
Runs out were testing the ol' suspension pins heading straight into some ugly chop...but good fun heading back in.
Fyi, when wind is SSW, sail to the Shark buoys then keep sailing about the same distance again for a straight NM if you could be bothered...
Maybe another session in tomorrow
