Yet another lovely place.
A puff more wind would have been nice, planning in the
gusts.
Apart from that a very nice day out. Used my biggest sail the 7.5
and, and managed to get that pesky harness to work at last
(only one sail face plant).
Met some local windsurfers Rob (from Yelverton), Gary and Keith
all very pleasant.
Wind dropped at about 3:30 so went for a walk round the lake.

Did see something I've never seen before. Chap set off from the
beach in a sailing dinghy, beam reach, attached to the trapeze, boat
capsized and he hit the sail with enough force to go through it (ouch, that
has got to hurt). When the boat was back on the beach the sail had
a man sized tear in it, expensive day out.

Cheers
Phil
