WSM to Brean 18Jun

Oh well that was interesting. Got to WSM just after the Red Arrows, one had be flying down the approach road as I was going the other way. The Beach front Jammed, and entrance to parking grid-locked by those going in blocked by those leaving. The gateman took my windsurfing pound, J&L already there, only to be told by a ranger after we started rigging that there was no sailing until after 6pm! :evil:

He did at least let us out the Uphill gate to avoid the jam, and we got to sail at Brean, a first for me. On the water about an hour and half before high tide. Wind was OK'ish for a 6.5/Kombat97, but not sure my body is. Sailed to a about high tide but the sea state was pretty messy close in, as were the kiters making it harder to get out with the close and confusing waves trying to knock you off before you get going, and my arms getting increasingly tired. Not sure I'll rush back, at least until the body recovers as definitely wrecked today :???:
