I want to say a big thankyou to Stephen who has introduced me to many more windsurfers on facebook, hopefully this will help spread the word about this challenge. To you all, I wish you good winds and for those in Europe a break from these horrible cold northerly winds.
There is unfortunately no more news or tracks from here in Weymouth. The only winds recently have been with very cold high pressure weather from the North and East. There was a brief respite last weekend but only in the hours of darkness. For the first time in my life I fully understand how the Jet Stream keeps us in the UK warm, the snow we had on Thursday and Friday disappeared after 20 minutes of Southwest wind when the sun set on friday night. All of us Portland Pirates were texting and hoping for a session on Saturday, alas the wind did not stay for the daylight hours, but did return again after sunset.
I have ordered some palmless mitts as now I am resigned to the fact I will have to catch whatever I can in this cold weather, even if it does mean -10deg windchill!
