Late session, me Neil H and Pete C got on the water about 5pm ish. Quickly became apparent that the wind was pretty strong and the 5.7m was a real handful in the gusts, upwind was pretty hard work too. I'd guess the gusts were around 45k and it was very broad too, first 100 meters fairly flat, but big build up of rolling chop after that, making 500m very slow. So I stuck with working on 10 sec runs. Had one very good run with a 44.6k peak and it felt very smooth and light. When I uploaded, it it showing as 45.1k 2 sec, so very pleased with that, shame I could not find four more runs like that. Today was like one big windsurf lesson and looking forward to the next one. Was fun.
