July, but not as we know it!

Words and photos by John Lymer 

I was overpowered on a 4.5m sail, but pleased I managed to cope, just about. I don't know how Jason, who sailed a bit earlier, heroically managed to hold onto a 5.4m! Tom went out on a 4.2m and I think Ian used 4.5m. The weather forecasters had described it as "unseasonably windy". They weren't wrong. I guess it was high 20s mph and gusting near to 40. It dipped a bit by the time the afternoon crew launched though. Dave Monks stars in the photos below and some of Dave Martin are here .

Felt like the Duracell bunny today - kept going on and on and on! Continuous planing & gybing with end to end runs. 6.5m & 100 litre board. Hope Sunday is same!

Forecast for tomorrow is beyond my ability. I'm crying off!

I’m still up for Fleetwood tomorrow if others are? Could be a bit wild.
