Wasn't windy enough to windsurf, even the kiters struggled with 17 mtr Turbines (It's a model name of a light wind kite) in other words perfect dinghy racing weather, just another sign of the weird weather patterns and wind directions we've been getting of late.

the grass is greener there Graeme- leave the cover on the boat and grab a board, so you didn't race... whatever.

I get the feeling that you might be starting to understand why so many people choose to sail on lakes.

Another blow out Sunday, this time a completely weird wind angle, not especially strong and not particularly big shore dump, but high tide and the angle meant we couldn't launch and clear the rock groin then the sun came out, gorgeous day otherwise and we're not on the water, I bet the lake boys had a good day..

More Tea, Cake and Spinnaker bimbling...

2nd week running I haven't raced because I'm back on the sea and the lake boys did, this week the viz wasn't good and it was a bit rainy gloomy with a forecast for lots of wind and after all the good weather and the fact it was the first time out this season, the Hythe an Saltwood Tea and Cake Eating club declined to race - the pussies.

So I didn't get to try my turbo assisted wing wang in anger - gutted.

I bet they had a good race down the lake.
