Rating:4 star rating
Board:99 litres
Sail:6.6

The NW came in somewhat stronger today so I could use my own board today. I actually would have been far better off my 5.9m or even 5.5m today, although the heavily downhauled 6.6m wasn't a disaster. The problem was really the squalls which kept blowing through and I didn't want to change down for fear that they would take the wind with them.
Great opportunity for a bit of freestyle: got my first upwind 360s outside of Dahab (I think flat water is the key to carving upwind enough to back the sail) and even managed to spin the board around some downwind 360s although didn't actually manage to remain on the board on these.
Nice to see more people turn up at Weymouth today. Sorry we didn't hang around, wanted to get home for tea!
