Portland Harbour Weds 24th August

I was willing but not able today still. I went down to the harbour for a quick session, my first in 5 weeks (longest time off the water for 18months!). The wind was a bit fickle, it would have meant some pumping and working the sail after every gybe, or at least slogging and watching for a gust. I still do not feel fit enough for that so sat it out, next time I will take my bigger board and at least get wet.

It was interesting watching one of the Portland Pirates, clearly bored just cruising with his massive kit doing downwind 360s. Just how anyone can do a 360 with a 9m fully cambered race sail is beyond me........
