First time i had sailed Hillhead for ages and unfortunately the wind didn't play ball.
Windy when i arrived, such that i had a discussion with someone whether to take a 4.2 or a 5.3 as i originally intended - and was persuaded to take a 4.7. Dropped before i got out so changed to 5.9m. Got a few planing runs but at the gybes my knee was painful from a crashed jump last week. And then the wind dropped away completely. Suspect tomorrow will be a different matter entirely.. but i think i proved that my knee isn't up to sailing again this weekend :(

Hmm not as windy as expected / hoped. I got slightly confused when I saw someone who was obviously a fairly good sailor rigging a 4.5, explaining he was just getting used to his board. However when I saw the hydrofoil attached to his board the fog of confusion lifted.
The wind never really materialised and it was hard work to get planing, but at least the sun was shining...

Seems like ages since I was last out and although the forecast didn't look epic I was keen to get a late Sunday afternoon sail in.
My 5.3 was spot on at the start of the session and towards the end but a bit marginal in the middle.
Highlight of the afternoon was bumping into a couple we had met in Margarita ages ago - although unfortunately them it was borne out of their van not starting. At least I was able to ferry Mum and kids home whilst Dad waited for the AA...
