Some Sadistic Bastard said today, "I need some backup for an Hour" Thanks Mate and Congratulations
My day started out hunting for cars for my eldest lad, which ended up a suscessfull operation, finally lobbed home about 2.30 with the wind blowing quite nicely. Digestive tract is still giving me the shivering fits so quick unload then load up the trailer and belt of down to the run.
Got down there to see Pepe belting atound looking very nice on the water.
Rig quickly, nip of to the bog to unload again, Hardz emerges from the great beyond and gives me the news, so much for a nice liesurely sail, Hit the water, go about a Km down the beach and realioze the booms a bit high, quick tweek and we're of, the target today was to venture into Claudesville for the first time this season Oh how I've missed sailing over there, Oh how I should have sorted out the footstraps after lending my board out so often Oh well just had to suck it up, Adjusted the harness lines on the fly got them pretty much sorted then went about bussiness. Would have liked to have sorted the mast foot posiition out a bit but it would have wasted to much time.
The breeze over Claudesville was as usuall stronger than Novara, stayed over there for about 10Nm decided that no one was going to join me so decided descretion was the better part of stupidity and decided to blast back, woo hoo, Ive missed the 7km down wind hammer. Was a bit interesting mid way back when lunch decided it was that good it deserved a second tasting, got to admit if you're gonna Yack whilst sailing Tandori Chicken salad doesn't taste to bad
Made up the rest of the time running parralel with the shore past the channel, legs gave out at the end went all wibbly wobbly on me.
Had to do a record derig as what ever didn't go up decided that wanted to take the normal route at speed Thank goodness for a close bog
Great fun, realy happy with the results, great start to the season.
Imagine what tomorow will bring
