Great downwinder from Westhaven to St Helliers in gusty W-WNW. There were 6 naval warships parked in the harbour for the navy 75th anniversary event which was quite a site. There was a bit of a security detail going on as we got buzzed by six different police boats who were curious to know what we were doing. They were friendly once they knew what we were doing and not going to be suicide SUPers! I guess with a beard and backpack I might have looked a bit dodgy from a distance!? The Coastguard came over and wanted us to get out of the shipping channel, something to do with not getting in the way of the container ships. Caught some great runners off Tamaki Yacht Club.
