Time to get back to my old routine.

It has been a very busy 18months or so since my last post on here. Not busy on the water though. It is time to get back on it. Today was my first decent session in a good few months as I am now starting to feel almost as fit and healthy as I have ever been.

Work has been hard, there have been lots of changes, many for the better though I am sad to see some friends look for jobs elsewhere due to those changes. My fitness got to its worst in my life, and my weight went over 100kg.

Since January 1st I have been eating raw fruit and veg, in juice, blended and very occasionally fermented grape juice in green bottles. Since the start I have gone from 100kg dead down to 88kg, though mid autumn I was hitting almost 105kg on the scales.

First session back with a 66cm board and 7.3m sail I realised how much weight I had lost, the board was like a battleship and the sail felt more powerful than it did last time I used it.

One thing that has happened is Scotty Stallman who wrote a post for me a long time ago is now far outclassing myself and most other Portland Harbour regulars. Today I knew he would beat my peak, so I did a couple of nautical miles, quite sure I could at least stay on top with those, not a chance! His laydown gybes also look very classy now.

All the photos as usual were taken expertly by Andy Stallman, thanks Andy!
I am going to try to write a post per week from now on, like I did at the start.
