We had the blue skies, but very marginal winds. I had two good runs planing all the way on my Kombat97/6.5 but other than that it was mainly wobbling between waves and standing on the shore waiting for the wind. The forecast wind after high tide never happened with the exception of a downpour squall...
It looks like there there should be some wind this week. Tues/Weds look promising or a bit damp, any one got any plans? I was thinking of a trip one day (Hamworthy probably) and WSM the other, but interested if anyone else going anywhere.
WSM forecast looks a bit marginal for me to make the trek on a Friday evening Bob, HT:19:49 with the wind dropping as the water arrives. But might be OK at 16mph on Bigger kit for a couple of hours after the rain, but I'd like another couple of mph to make it worth the hour's drive. But then I've mi...

Kit was just right after a phaffing session to decide. Good No...

Sounds like you had better wind than at Portsmouth on Saturday. It was a bit on the light side and gusty, I heard it was 10-15 mph. The boats often struggled to get on the foils and I'm not sure I would have bother rigging my kit for those conditions, although it was quite warm and sunning. Sunday w...

We're back from an interesting weekend at the America's Cup World Series Portsmouth, the TV highlights give a much different impressions to those at the site. I'm glad we went but it was a very mixed experience. Well done Ben and BAR Team, although it wasn't the easiest way to win it with Ben's desi...
