Tankerton Bay, Kent on 31/08/12

Rating:3 star rating
Board:95 litres
Sail:5.6

As this was my week off, I arrived at Tankerton Bay at 9am for an early morning sail. I earned it as I spent the whole of Thursday with the kids at the Rare Breeds Farm while Sarah was chilling in Deal.

The combination of the incoming tide and the onshore wind turned the sea a revolting sewer-brown colour literally as far as the eye could see. Not the most attractive sight first thing in the morning.

On the upside, the sea was quite rough with some 4-foot high ramps for jumps and practising tight gybes.

By 11am the wind dropped (again!) but this time I was close to the beach so I just laid back and let the waves gently wash me ashore.

Also, a guy I met on Tuesday at St. Mary's bay, was there too. Random coincidence!

Overall, Kent was ok this week, but I want my Hayling back!
