Back on the water

Bayswater Marina, Bayswater
Windsurfing: Racing
4 pm - 7 pm Friday. December 18. 2015
my rating 4 star rating
Wind Direction: SW Wind Strength: maxed   using 6.6 - 7.0m sail. Swell Direction: Swell Size: nonexistent Tide: Low - Falling.

Today was a disaster, hung around waiting for the boys to finish work and started rigging at the marina. Swirly wind managed to flick my sail as I was trying to grab it depositing it onto one of the fence posts and taking out 2 panels. Emergency call to Jack and he grabbed a couple of freeride sails for me to use until my Evo 8's arrive on Monday.

Sail was probably a bit big for the amount of wind, managed to get it feeling pretty good but when a big gust hit it just wasn't able to remain in shape so was a handful. Very lumpy in front of the marina too but quite good over towards sulphur beach road.

Day ended with Laurence and Jack having a good crash, breaking Laurences boom, damaging 2 boards and a sail.

Must also mention the absolute moron trying to get his boat onto the trailer with the wind cranking from behind him and a small chop running. Almost broke his son in half at the waist while he was at it. Some people shouldn't be allowed boats.
