Green IS-wind was better than we expected so half way thru my 1st run on the exo tb 103& rss 7.8mk I turned around ,went back to shore & changed down to the 6.2 RSS.Comfy cruisy day with the aim of clocking up NMs & Hrs .
Good fun but wrecked .

Started on Green IS with the EXO warp S 120 /9m2 warp/40cm production fin/camel back /flares & energy bars.Wind was solid 18-20 so felt uncomfortable especially going across the wind where I rapidly discovered I was way underfinned.Spinout/sliding was terrible & saps so much energy ...
Aim was to clock up ks & Hrs but could only get comfortable bearing off -as a consequence lossed so much ground down wind that I couldnt get back to the Island.Made the decision mid morning to sail home to Clifton Beach around 20nm away so ventured off.
Found some great water on the way -western section of Arlington had some really smooth water between the rolling swell so got a nice NM on this gear...Out in the open it was very rough so lots of concentration needed.
I've always considered this board /pads/straps comfy but today less so !!
Calloused hands/4 eroded areas on feet from straps/pads/really sore lateral epicondyles but 2 PBs !!! Happy

A nice hour or so at Yorkeys, nothing as exciting as Cam's day
