The NE wind was funnelled through the estuary making the rivermouth the windiest place around.
First 2 sessions were at high tide which made for mega-flat water. Air temp around 27c so the summer suit saw the light of day for the first time this year (water still pretty chilly though). Made my first proper downwind 360 - flat water and loads of power is definitely the key!
By the time of my third session, the tide was well on the way out, making for some nice swell with the wind blowing cross-off. My only regret was I was knackered by now!
All in all, a brilliant day's sailing with a wide range of conditions (but never had to change kit).
And the beautiful weather meant Jane and Nayra were quite content on the beach... All rounded off with a nice BBQ!
