Need a sail but knew it would be a tough day when I arrived, it confirmed my smallest board available being Bolt 135L was too big. The Bolt 115 am still working on so maybe shouldn't have bothered as the sea was big. Most guys out on 6m Squiz on 7m. The wind was up/down so ventured out on 6.2 Hellcat / 135. The thinking was keep under powered to keep the 80cm board in the water.
I was under on the inside but fully powered up on the outside. The Bolt refuse to stay down, taking off too much going in or out so wasn't enjoying. It was the old school narrow boards day slicing thru the rough water.
Moved the straps back inboards to stop any excess speed and it was better but every time the big gusts came the board lifted. Would have got away with on flattish water, but this was a wave head day so conceded defeat.
Hopefully will finish repair on 115 Bolt soon. as would have been ideal today, although both boards and me prefer flattish water!
Hoping to sail a couple of hours at Mersea early Bank hol Mon, as its anniversary and she wants to dress up and go out!
Merses is ideal Bolt territory so hoping for some good speeds and mileage
