Monday 23rd April
Had the day off, so headed to Mersea Island, a place I don't normally go but couldn't think of anywhere better in a SErly at high tide.
Wind a bit light for the first hour or so, but then picked up so I was powered up on 5.3 and FS board. Had my first proper go at loops on the way out. Had about 3-4 attempts, each one ending up landing on my back but coming out of the footstraps. Would have done more but I struggled to find a decent bit of chop that didn't require jumping almost directly into the wind. More practice needed methinks.
Cold and rainy, but fun. A few others out as well on 6m sails.
