Almost the best sail of the year for me! I came down too late otherwise it
would have been. I was having so much fun I just had to forget wifey and
take the resulting mouthful as I was 1.5 hours late!
Launching at the golf carpark was easy so was sailing out till u meet the
rollers. The sea was monster going out but you could definately go round
them but coming back was like Tenerife (nearly) now the face between the
wave and back up...great. Its so much easier gybing off wave faces when
they are seperate, 5***** day.
Steve Q - I saw you rippig the flat bit in the river and I tried to get
there but the wind was iffy on a outgoing tide.
When the tide went low the waves close to the carpark was superb but the
bloody wind died a bit and I had only put a quid in the meter for 2 hours,
and I had 0 minutes left! so I shot off to wifey. Rog Paul and some else
stayed out when I left and I think Steve was still there.
Gripes - my boom slipped to my knees twice - not fun in that monster sea
and those bloody lobster pots I hit the one without a ball twice!
