New sails

After missioning it back form the BWA with about a million people kit in my van. I got a phone call to say me new kit was in. I proceeded to drive back from the east coast down south and picked up my new sails super light and really nice.

Itching to get out I had a typical Sunday, usually family stuff then taken girlfriend shopping. I managed a cheeky little session at East witterings around 19.00. Conditions weren't amazing but was one of the best sails I have had in ages really good fun no pressure session.

Bank Holiday

It been a pretty good bank holiday weekend on the east coast, sailing Friday to Monday, with sunshine and not a cloud in the sky. Very strange UK weather? Managed to find some good waves up at Walberswick near my house, an added bonus of a short drive un-like my usual treks to the southcoast or Cornwall.

I also got to sail a new spot which I have been wanting to sail for ages, Bawdsey. It was really good with much bigger waves than the other spots near me. I have been a bit hesitant to sail it because of all the second world war debris, pillboxes and rather large metal spikes hidden by the lovely brown east coast water! No problems though.

You can seee what I mean on this blog.

After sailing for the last 5 days in row I am knackered, but ready for my trip up to Rossi and Ireland for the first of the BWA wave events. Hope the weather's as good for those trips.
