Wind Direction: W
Wind Stength: 15 knots
Surf / Sea State: Flat
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.
