I had a pleasant little windsurf session in the Estuary at Ynyslas today. Dave phoned me around 10.30am to tell me there was some wind...I was just about to leave anyway, but got a bit of a move on now that I knew it was windy. It looked pretty windy on the seafront. but as the tide was almost high and it was dead onshore I decided it would be more fun to sail with everyone else in the estuary. It was a bit prtoected in there, so I rigged my biggest kit (6.3m sail and 99L board). David went out with a 5.5m sail on a big board but couldn't get going, so Sally, Dave and Sarah all changed their minds about the 5-6m sails they had rigged and rigged something bigger. I got out on my kit pretty quickly and headed off towards the channel where I found some wind and had a good time cruising around on the green waters under a nice clear sunny sky. The others got going in the end and seemed to have a good sail. The wind continued to drop and after a while I spent 50% of the time off the plane. Ben came out and joined us too. Not a particularly thrilling sail, but it was nice just to be cruising around on what will probably be the last summery day for a while.

I did sail across to Aberdovey at one point too which is always nice.
Back at the beach Sally had bought sausage and chips for everyone, so although Simon turned up and we were going to go kitesurfing, by stomach got the better of me and I sat there eating and chatting instead. Everyone seemed to have had a good sail, so not a bad day altogether.
