Had some awesome sessions since Friday. The wind has been incredible!
Friday: Sailed Camber, 4.1 and 76 Quad. Amazing session with some awesome ramps.
Saturday: Essexpression… Day one at Point Clear. Bit lighter than expected with the wind dropping a bit. Changed up a size and had a couple of good heats..well the final was definitely better. We had two semi final heats and a final. Max Rowe and Oscar Carmichael got through from heat 1 and myself and John Palmer from heat 2. The wind picked up in the final, which suited me as I was a bit under powered in the semi. I opened up my heat with a one handed air’ish’ Bob and a one handed air funnel. Then got a forward, a shaka, a planning flaka, a sw kono, an eslider, a mat (half a matador) and a pun (half a puneta) and a couple other moves I think… so all in all a pretty good heat, infact, probably one of my best i’ve ever sailed. I didn’t really watch what the others got, which probably helped, and I ended up taking 1st place. Pretty pleased with that result. Then went back to Max’s that evening and had a few drinks…
Sunday: Sailed Marconi’s sailing club, Steve Thorne’s local, with everyone. Was good fun but felt pretty worse for wear…
Monday: Sailed Camber with Max, Palmer and Whitey. Looked pretty budget when we arrived but decided to pick up as soon as we hit the water… had to change from 4.9 and 90l twinfin to 4.5 and 76l quad…still well powered up. Had a great session with Whitey taking some snaps…so hopefully see more soon…
Completely broken now, ready for a day or twos rest then…who knows…maybe another windsurf (judging by the forecast).
