A great weekend - sunshine, winds force 5 to 7, small fun sized waves and lots of friendly faces, some old some new from OMWC, what more could you ask for? (More energy in my case perhaps.)

Excellent day, well powered up all day. First real sail of the season. Windy and sunny all day and a good omwc turnout. Just wished I had a bit more energy to carry on.

After too many weeks with no wind, what an antidote! 5m weather, waves and sun all day - for as long as you could hold on. It's been far too long since I last sailed Avon Beach - I am definitely going to try and sail there more regularly now.. Never did get my new waveboard out, but that's because I was having too good a time on my old one....

A good day on Sat, went out on trusty 91l and 4.7, but was pretty overpowered and getting knackered and cross, so switched to 4.0, very occasionally under-powered but happy. 0.7 sqm, the difference between pleasure and pain! Really getting around to tuning the new gear too, which helps, especially the harness. Sunday in the car park and caff also enjoyable and relaxed - good to see all those people out.

Great to see everyone. Last sailed in October, and even further back for Sheena. So it was great to have perfect conditions to sail in with good friends. Hell, even Martin Ody turned up!

Saturday - brilliant weather and force 4 winds made for my first real sail of the year. Struggled at first but with some tweaking of fins booms outhaul wetsuit etc got it cracked and had a geat sail - but soon got knackered! Sunday pissed it down and just sat in the cafe!
