It's a long time since I visited Lyme and that was back in my water ski days, but from memory Lyme has quite a well defined and spaced wave length, our problem up here is a very nasty steep but short chop, which in a south westerly on starboard out to sea has you bucking like a clown in a rodeo even in boats with quite long waterline length, it is Contender Country when it's windy.
I'm thinking of to hell with it I'll give it a go anyway, and keep the EPS for lightwind days, it sounds like sailing a windsurfing short board which means banging the corners which I don't really like having to do at Hythe as more often than not it's a one sided beat and often the confined side is the one to go.

It's light, lively and doesn't need super star skills to handle, but provides enough interest to make you want to master it. 

The swell is pretty long at Lyme so there shouldn't be any problems; i would have thought the problems would be more in the short chop.


Yes, a windy, wind against tide at Stone S.C would sort the men from the boys.

I should add... that it's only going to be a bit nosey trapezing hard off wind in the nastiest short chop, and all you'd do is sit in and hike it and go deeper.
