went out sailing today in the boiling hot north wales sun and not much wind was pretty boring, as soon as the club racing had finnished the sea breeze kicked in really strongly (an almost instant f4) and then it very quickly turned very stormy we were out in the scorp making the most of the wind before we had to head in early due to thunder and lightening very near, it then chucked it down REALLY hard for about an hour n a half floodin loads of the roads around our club. but its hot and sunny again now, talk about extreme weather!

That sounds like a normal SIngapore sunday from April to October...the only time we get any wind to speak of at this time of year is because of the thunder storms.

Went out in the 400 at the weekend... (pond in Oxford) strange kinda wind really.
basically I think, an F2 but with 'holes.'  For us  'newbies' it went a bit like this..... F2 then a sort of  hole thingy that was F0 then up what felt like F5 though i guess was only F3 then back to F0 then F2, and after that you  would start all over again. Could they have been thermals?

and...... How hot! bet there are lost of these about   not red with rage...just RED!!   ouch sore!

the weather down here in germany is so damned hot! had a regatta at the weekend and on saturday was no wind so we had to wait the whole day but no wind turned up. sunday was even hotter but there was a bit wind. only problem was between nothing and 3bft was every kinda wind and the wind once came from east and then suddendly from north! you can imagine how often we had been swimming! and the sun is so agressive i have a serious sunburn and i look like a panda bear!

24th July, should be the height of the summer... Rain then showers, they said... Force 5 to 6 SSW, they said... With a high tide on top, there was no sailing today

Nice waves, though
