The glorious weather stopped any thoughts of windsurfing, but there was surf all weekend and a very large beach. Mark was out on his sup, Paul on his kayak and myself on a surfboard. When the tide receeded the speedsails came out along with Chris m.........

Also on the beach was a chap out for the second time only on his speedsail who got plenty of tips from us and has the same passion for the place as we do , he also surfs and windsurfs so he fitted in well with our group and we shall meet again.

Evenings were very sociable around the fire on the campsite.

A very enjoyable weekend that goes all to quickly.

We arrived early on Thursday hoping to take advantage of the 20 plus mph wind forecast for today & the weekend, unfortunately this never arrived it was more like 13 to 17mph most of the time, still I had to try and with little gaps between the white water it proved to be a thank less task. Friday & Sunday I took the blokart out & had a cracking time flying up & down the beach, reaching speeds just under 40mph with just a few inches off the ground & on a wet slippery surface it feels pretty quick & very exciting. Mark & Paul c spent a lot of time enjoying there new hobby fishing & even managed to get me envolved crabbing off Appledore quay for a very entertaining evening's fun, as usual this soon became competitive with big cheers every time one was caught much to the amusement of the passers by. Chris & Kerry went out surfing on Saturday, then went windsurfing on monday & managed to stay out a good few hours on big kit..
All in another great fun weekend.
