Wednesday 7th September - Windsurf **** - The Manor at Felixstowe – sunny periods.

 

 Foil – 20.00 knot max, (spot PB) 18.72 knot ave.,(spot PB) 15.43 knot hour (PB), 17.83 knot mile, (year and spot PB) 49.28 km., 14.28 knot alpha.

 

Starboard Freeride 150 and an Evolution Freeride foil with a Tushingham Thunderbird 6.5.

 

Today was pretty much the same as yesterday, breezy first thing, then dropping only to build again around 1 on the afternoon but after a wet start we had more sunshine today, windier too! So, after breakfast it was exercises in the sunny, warm back garden, then lunch before hitching my trailer and heading down, to be honest I was not expecting much as it was looking marginal. Robert and Andy were both setting up and after a quick chat the breeze looked very promising so I whizzed back to Squiz Lane to set up my foil board taking a chance with my favourite sail, the Tushingham Thunderbird 6.5. With the wind once again SSW, slightly onshore it is not the best as it makes the sea very lumpy and I quickly realised I had too much sail but decided to stick it out to try for another hour, in fact I lasted two hours in some challenging conditions, I could have definitely used my 115 lt. fin board but being rough I though it would be better on the foil! I didn’t push overly hard today to go fast being rough but was verry pleased to end up with several PB’s again, am loving the new Starboard freeride gear:) So I got a best ever foil hour, spot and year mile PB and a spot average PB, plus a spot PB for 2 second max. so am well chuffed. Also, I was pleased with my gybing today only dropping the last one when I put the nose of my board into the back of a wave! So, two pretty full-on days with maybe another to come tomorrow!

Then when I got home, I found out I had three pics in the local paper, the Star but better still I am cover pic on the Autumn 2022 Felixstowe Town Council magazine:)
