Good session, at first wind was up and down. Went out on 7m x15 but then put harness hook through just it just above the first batten! So went back out with 6.3, occasionally felt a bit underpowered but most of the time it was okay. Had a break and got cold, went back out and toes froze and had cramps in both thighs out of depth, it was a little scary at first then I managed to get up on the board, had one last run, then the biggest breakfast roll I could find. Nice, near my upper target for distance for the month now - done 40nm, need to do another 10more tomorrow.
Damn, .22 off joining the 30 club! So close.....

Great fun session at the Ray, SW winds meant the best speeds were done on the corner of the 2 courses, not quite fully powered up on 6.2. Nice to see the Portland hit squad made the trip, Will T was flying ( must be fatherhood done him good Lol), Well done to Mike G with first 40max ( 10s average nextÂ mike). All in all a good day if not quite perfect conditions, more please!Â

First time in Southend!Â If youÂ don'tÂ mindÂ rigging up on dog shit grass and then walking 3/4 of a mile through mud with your kit...its a great place!Â If I can get over the trauma I would love to have another go in more wind.

First time putting a sail > than 6m on the little board. Struggled a little but its good experience. Change of fin this time though and no spin out and bad wipeouts so happy. Don’t have to explain to Mrs H or the boss at work why I look so roughed up! A good turn out today which makes it all more fun too. Didn’t get to see everyone from the team but will in time.
I trotted up wind for a while in prep for a mile run to back up Ian only for the wind to drop. Abandoned the run thinking I would have another go and then didn't make it as the wind dropped more. I only hope someone else did better than me on this. Its a lesson for me, I should have carried on with the run.

A good call to head for Southend today Tricky conditions spent a while trying to work out where best to sail but came good in the end. Good crowd out, with some great speeds and PB's well done to all.

Thought the 6.4 would be plenty but definately needed more on the downwind runs. Consistently just under 30Kt so more power or less drag required.
