    7 degrees today seemed cold.
    The windchill made it feel more like 2 degrees.

    If it was sunny then, in March, you usually benefit from the sun's warmth on your black wetsuit, and flat water sailing is easy, as you stay dry.

    But if it's not sunny, and there are waves and the strong chance you get rinsed just getting off the beach, then you'd need gloves, full boots, and a hood.

    (You might even need funny tubes in your wetsuit and a drysuit zip.)

    And that's a summary of where my theshold lies.

    If, like tomorrow, the wind is bolt onshore, with 6 degrees, and it rains all morning, then what are you achieving by going afloat? It's a form of punishment as much as it fills the need to get in a session.

    My session average is well up for this year, and I don't want to spoil that with pneumonia or else a Ranulph Fiennes experience.
    Gonna wait a bit longer.

    I had a great sail. I really enjoyed it. A few nice frontside smacks and one decent forward. Felt like I achieved a good session. No gloves either. Sounds like you and BB need better wetsuits !

    I probably just need to MTFU. The wetsuit is fine.

    Windsurfing is a long way down the list of things i want to do today - grim. The worse thing is that the mild windy weather that looked like heading our way at the end of next week has gone. Winter stays on into April if the current forecast is right. Time to reset expectations then...
