Overcast, full of holes. Managed to plane for a while, but the on and off action made the whole thing tiring.

The plan to get Lucas out there failed due to the cold/wave/wind combo. After a few failed attempts packed up and got back to the campsite for marshmallow smores.

A small sail and big board - strange combination but it worked well in the very gusty conditions. Great fun sailing with all the usual crew.

Also had a very brief sail on Friday evening, only a few runs across the pond - not enough to get planing but still pleasant. Then Sunday I eneded up going over to mmy favourite shop and demo-ing various combinations of sail/mast, well worth it, but not much time-on-the-water.

Master plan worked today!

Lucas was out happily sailing for two hours - joined by Rorry and Iona half-way through. Rorry was the only one planing, but I didn't care, cause I was fast-tacking non-stop - although I wasn't planing, which makes fast-tacking sound like a bit of an oxymoron, but never mind. The point is that I was tacking!

The small sail was deliberate, so that I could keep a close eye on Lucas, so I seized the opportunity for some much-needed low speed practice.

Kids were very impressive! Long gone the days when we used to beg them to have another go in the lagoon!

Great to see everyone over the weekend.

John, hope you feel better!
