At last, the wind has returned. The forecast was for the wind to pick up this afternoon, so when I saw the sea at around 11am and it was white with spray from the offshore winds I started to get excited. Unfortunately when I got to the Golf Course Car Park, Borth the wind had dropped again so it was out with the 6.3m sail and Fanatic Cross 100. 'Radical' Rob and Nick were already out planing on and off with 6.7m sails. I was overpowered at first with my kit, but as the wind continued to drop felt nicely powered up and had a good sail in the relatively flat water and gusty SSE winds. Rob packed up and went home as the wind had dropped too much for him, but Nick stayed out with me. Just as we thought the wind had dropped completely and we bobbled back to the shore, I went for one last run and managed to find a gust and got planing nicely. Nick was on the beach watching and after I had a couple of runs with good down-the-line wave rides on the 1ft clean swell and a decent jump on the way out, he soon came back out and joined me. We had another half an hour playing in the waves before packing up and heading home.
