Good choice. I think that all you really need is some wind. This is now getting silly. I have not sailed since late December. Grrrrrrrr.

It got to just over 30 knots in the estuary on Wednesday and I was out for a sail last week. There's been wind here, not a lot, but there has been some.

The toys are here!!

Boardwise delivered the Fanatic Falcon Speed bard last night for me... They did me a great deal on a brand spanking new one and even drove it out to West Wales for me! So, that's the 'proper' speed board sorted.

I've also got a small slalom board in the form of a Mistral SL Red Dot Team Edition and a 5.2m and 5.3m North Warp thanks to Jim at Puravida Boardriders (who also delivered them to my house in person for me!)

I still need a 430cm mast for the 6.3 sail but I'm running out of money! I also need some wind, some time to use the kit and balls of steel if I'm to hit 40 knots!

Gentleman start your engines. I will be there to show you how it is done of course. What about fins? They are a key part of speed kit, a good fin can add a knot or two in speed.

I've got a couple of fins that should be OK... Although not perfect. A 30cm and a 28cm Fanatic Falcon fins... I kight need something a little smaller at some point.

Wind is currently 20-25 knots.. Perfect for the 6.3 but I don't have a mast for that yet... If it fills in a little more by midday I might pop down for a quick try out of the kit with the 5.2m.

Sunday could be tasty if the forecast holds.

I can't do SUnday as I'm doing the Mawddach Goldrush.

Already making excuses. Tut tut! Anyway, it sounds like my wife invited me for a walk up the Wrekin with her friends on Sunday without telling me. It could all turn into turmoil.

The way the forecasts are going anything can happen. It now looks like tomorrow could be windy as well.

Wind and tides look good for Tuesday morning at the moment.... It's a long way off I know so anything could happen but that looks to be the best bet for me at the mo.

You haven't picked the best day.... Currently about 2 knots out there, but I'll see you later.
