Distance Covered:

I had a nother nice session in the estuary today, but things were back to normal with just me out.

I got to the beach at around 8.30am and was greeted by a decent 18 knot wind, but not really enough water, so I took a walk across the dunes. The pristine dune that BEFS and I ruined the other day had re-established itself. I know it sounds weird to go on about it, but it does look cool.

I then went back and rigged my 5.7m sail and Fanatic Cross 100 with a smallish (30cm) fin and got out on the water. I was nicely powered up and if anything overpowered to start with, but the wind gradually dropped off a little and I had a good session on the flat waters of the estuary. Nothing special, just blasting back and forth and trying some 360's. I didn't make any of them, but I had fun trying. I seemed to get to the back-winded position, nicely in control and had moved my front foot in front of the mastfoot, but then just seemed to get stuck there, backwinded and stopped!!!... Maybe I need more speed on the way in and a slightly tighter turning arc to keep me carving aroud further??

SeanBo and Jane turned up at the beach but decided not to go out today. I packed up as the tide was right in after about 3 hours on the water.
