Struggled a bit in the chop, but also exciting runs bearing off on the rolling swell. Too overpowered to jibe. Sparky and Artur were there, a real team day !

This is what being self-employed is all about. Took the afternoon off and enjoyed the best conditions I've seen at Sandringham - blue skies, plenty of wind, and a super-low tide giving us a big patch of flat, shallow water for 3 hours. Awesome!

The delta fin was of course pretty perilous out in the middle so I stayed close to the sandbar most of the time -very close in fact! Even when I did scrape the bottom or surprise some oysters, the shallow rake of the fin meant it was no drama. Needs a bit of sanding now but a price worth paying for doing 30 knots in 20cm of water...

Good to catch up with Georgio and Artur - team day out..!

Cheers MT! I was on an orange RS Slalom - don't think I saw you out there, unless you were that Koncept that appeared for a few minutes around 5pm and then vanished..?
