Arrived in Cornwall, headed straight for the beach at Marazion, rigged up and went out. Why waste time on pleasantries?!

X-shore, good swell, quite a few people out, but very cold wind, it being easterly. Rigged 5.5 initially, but on first run out had arms removed, so changed down immediately to 4.7, much happier. Spent a couple of hours, a good session. Could probably have gone with 80l board on reflection.

Started as I meant to go on - 4.7, 80l. Nice session with OMWC people, still some swell from the lows earlier. Managed to wear a hole in my hand with newly donned wedding ring - suboptimal!

A quickie prior to leaving for home - boo. X-shore again, but not the same kind of swell, however made the most of it for the 45 minutes I had. This is a good spot! And it was good to be actually sailing in Cornwall - so often been skunked on these trips.

Great to meet all you guys down at Marazion, get on the water, get effin frozen, sort out the caravan, see me mate in Penzance, , get pissed, had a pasty, great road ride round West Penwith on the Saturday with proper job cream tea at West Kernigy, and the bit of art 'business' I did on the Monday afternoon has paid for it all already. Result!
When's the next road trip? We're heading down for late May BH.
May see you then if not S. Coast before.
Good session in the sun at Weston-super-Mare today.
