Yes I'm still alive! Geez it felt good to get a sail in albeit wind a bit light for this combo. Got a couple okay gusts but not much there to bear away.

Fun session sailing with Ed & Boxy in our beautiful Tropical waters. Nice strong winds and a neap tide which ended up being a little too low to hang out on the drag strip- I give myself a 2/10 for thinking the water level may be ok there, another 30cm would have been nice. Didn't even chance it as I wasn't in the mood for broken gear...
So ended up sailing out wider in more choppy conditions predominately in the aqua waters. Tailed Ed around a bit- have to say big Kudos given to Ed. For a bloke with a sore body, it was a blood good effort! Boxy seemed to have some fun, albeit way over powered with his 7m Severne Gator sail- I think Boxy got a couple of PB's which is great!
A little progression for me today having my front foot in the straps for quite alot of the session. Bit disappointed with the NM- needed longer runs... Had some spin outs with the Sabre fin, a few tails walks and one slam dunk which sorted me out momentarily. Tried some downwinders without really lighting it up- felt I could have got a lot more out of the rig in some smoother water.
All in all, a good training session had. Used Futura 122, Severne Convert 6.7 BP Sabre 42.5
