Re: Sunday 13th Jan 2019

First sail of the year for me too, at Minster 12:00-2pm. Gusty cross-off with some big lulls and 6.5 the recommended sail size. I sailed like a wimp overpowered in the gusts on the 6.5. Despite the reasonable air temperature the water felt noticeably colder than my last session in December. Good to ...

Re: Paint matching for repairs.

I needed paint for the nose of my RRD Wave Cult so took the board to a local car paint supplier and they matched it using a RAL colour swatch and mixed a can of that colour. It wasn’t a 100% match but good enough not to notice. I've now sold the board but am left with a nearly full can of RRD red. I...

Windsurf Round Europe

Jono is through the Dardanelles and making good progress into the Sea of Marmara. But it must be cold - 6 degrees max in Istanbul.

Re: Video editing

I use iMovie to edit GoPro footage. I do this mainly on a desktop and it works well, although there is a bit of learning curve. When I'm away from home I use it on my iPad and it's surprisingly effective, although slower and more limited. On an iPad you can use it to take 15 seconds clips of your fo...

Re: Sunday 9th December

Up early to get to Minster by 9:00 to catch the best of the tide. Rigged 6.5 and Firemove which was the right choice except when the rain clouds came through increasing the wind. On my own for quite a while until joined by one other windsurfer. A good session and not too cold at nine degrees - but b...

Re: 1/2nd dec

Got to Camber around 12:00 today just as the wind had dropped so rigged 5.2 and got in some good runs before the wind died.

Met Office is forecasting more west in the wind for Camber on Sunday. And less rain.
