SUNDAY - Turned up early again to find a few surfers but half a million kites out.
Wind southerley 25ish knots. Rigged 5.4 with 93 JP. Water F*&^ing freezing but wind mild. Wind gradually increased making the board very floaty in the air, but stuck with original kit with maxed out downhaul & outhaul. Midday called it a day only to find Jonathan arriving for the afternoon stint in the 'high tide'. Not sure who would be down for the graveyard shift....

how was it Jonathan???

Vulcan attempt # 1
My first proper vulcan attempt...
Rating:3 star rating
Board:84 litres

Started off at Hayling however by the time I launched it was approaching high tide and was pretty much onshore. 3 attempts later and I still wasn't off the beach - having watched a number of people destroy their kit!

Went round to Hillhead where it was amazingly cross shore. It felt a bit strange sailing from Hillhead on port tack - like Margarita but a bit chillier...
