omg, it's been nearly 4 years, finally got out again. not before i
discovered the boom lever cleat was destroyed by corrosion and the trim
locks had snapped. thank god for gaffer tape as there's no popping down to
the local windsurf shop these days!
launched in Swan Bay by the yacht club, and good to see a couple of others
out too cause I figured there was a reasonable chance I'd require the
emergency services calling at some point, but thankfully it proved
strong cross wind, a bit flukey near the club as coming over the land but
strong and clean further out, overpowered on the 5.3m. a miracle - i could
remember how to windsurf. not quite planning out of the gybes but
even though high tide, it's only waist to ankle deep and the fin was
touching frequently. sandy weedy bottom though so just blasted over it.
towards the end of the session board start to feel weird, juttering and
almost spinning out. got back to discover the shallow water and sandy
bottom had resulted in the curved fin being sanded about 5mm flatter and a
flap of the fin hanging off. oh well guess it was worth it.
shout out to Brian, maker and squiz, good to see you going strong. what
about the rest of the felixstowe mob??!
