It was nice to see many friendly faces. Despite the lack of wind and the excess of water, we did have a pleasant weekend. The sailing was short, but thanks to a guy in a dodgy band, I was flying!

The wind was just strong enough for my trusted 6.0, but the chop was hard work. It's too bad the wind dropped as soon as Adrian was finished with it! I would have loved to carry on for this (maybe) last session of 2011. I will give it a go again in December if the weather allows.

Hayling when wind conditions are great

For me a slightly challenging sailing at Hayling, but despite the waves it was still very enjoyable.
Absolutely exhausted after only 60min, maybe I should start pumping iron during weekdays!

(I hope I will have time to see you all at Lepe next weekend)

Not a good afternoon where I managed to scare everybody when I went to inspect Portland Harbour wall, unfortunately and despite a very optimistic windguru the wind did not pick up, it died! and it took me 1h30 to come back...

I started windsurfing at around 1pm a bit underpowered then after a short break at 4, the wind increased slightly and was perfect for my 6m sail. Then for 2 hours I flew across the harbour and had the opportunity to try dozens of carve gybes, which made it my best ever sail!
Thank Nuala and Lawrence for hosting and for the accurate weather forecast ;)

First time in Hayling, I had a short but amazingly smooth session, maybe the best I've ever had, with winds almost constant, pretty much perfect for my 6.0
This saturday, I just wished I had a smaller board and more time :)

On my first time in the Channel I did my first jumps! I admit it must have looked pretty ugly but there wasn't anybody to watch so I'm alright. I am shattered and quite pleased despite the lack of wind. Thank you Juan and Genevieve for hosting.

Really good conditions for my level and with the advice of Andrew and Nick I managed to finish my very first "almost planning" carve gybes. Thanks Nuala for letting me try your RRD board, loved it!

A bit overpowered all day and was having great difficulties carve gybing (fin too long!). Really good blast and great fun nonetheless.
