Re: No Unnecessary Travel.

For my daily exercise I’ve been cycling, including through my local beach car park. It’s in a bit of rough out-of-the-way area so gets a lot of car traffic from dog owners who don’t want to pick up their dog mess. When the lockdown first came on nothing seemed to have changed! Still a bustling dog t...

Re: No Unnecessary Travel.

Nobody is windsurfing Aardvark and it’s a difficult time for all of us and we don’t need to be sworn at by you. Tone it down.

But a good day...

What’s going on with my North e-type 6.2m battens?

Got off the water today to find a broken batten. That’s the 4th time I’ve broken a batten on this sail, 2 times this batten (the above-the-one-at boom-level) and 2 times the one above it.

Friday 5th March 2020

Cross Canonby this afternoon/early sneak off work. Great flat(ish) water blasting session on 35 l & 7.8m. But only had wind for about an hour so didn’t get my full fix. First time out for a while.

Re: Saturday 25th January 2020

Good day at Cross Canonby.
Cross shore with smooth sea and well-spaced decent sized ramps.
It was 8.5m wind when I arrived and 5.3m when I left but still got a good session on my 7m then 6.2m.

Very lonely sea and beach due to the weather best described as:
