Hmmm, just another day
Rolled up to Liptons, nice and windy, I only had my 6.6 with me and I was a bit worried as it looked too strong. Rigged up and hit the water and yep the wind dropped. So I walked and walked, every now and again trying to get going but weed too thick for my weedspeed, me thinking @#$% this shit. Roger sailed over and said he was struggling because lack of wind, also he had just had a big get off after hitting a weeberg. Decision made between us to go in but wait, the winds back yay, Rog who's obviously smarter than me said not a good idea with my fin, me being a brain surgeon said I'll be ok, just one run out and back. On my run back I was powered and loving it, weed looked ok no problem, then kapow, bang, blood. Over the handle bars using my head and gear combined to stop, off to the doctors, six stiches later and all good. Only good news, and what's really important in the long run, was I went faster than my mate, got to think about the numbers

Not too much left to say. shallow, thick invisible bergs of snot weed. I whacked my head on the mast during my off but had my helmet on. got a bit of a stiff neck tonight but nothing too bad. Even though its spring cup month be very carefull out there with these super low tides at the moment.
I couldnt get upwind enough to get to point grey Mike but kind of glad I didnt.
Great terminal velocity Bob, your peas grew back a bit today, mad bugger.
