Portland Sunday 23rd

Post by Adrian » Sun Sep 23, 2012 19:18

Not many made the trip only about 5 or 6 kites and the same number of windsurfers. It was dry for most of trhe daybefore violent rtain aftet 5pm and all the way down :!:

Given that it was supposed to gust up to 50mph I decided to make my first return to the Light side for 12 months running my 75 ltr Evo and 4.0. For most of the day my 7mtr kite would have been fine but then it really blew and all the kites came in quicklky - I put a bit more outhaul and downhaaul on and sailed until extinct :twisted: it took me about an hour and a hjalf to get my gybes back but not too bad as sometimes underpowered and sometimes unable to sheet in plus very heavy chop and white water - a great session shame folk did not make the trip.....I did not see anyone I knew but did not launch frtom the boatyard so might have missed someone.
