Got up pretty early on Saturday morning and headed down to Daymer. Not a bad drive really except for the rain and mist. Never having been there before, I had no idea what to expect. I must admit that I got that nervous adrenaline feeling when I saw all those waves rolling in. However, this was Polze...

I've never sailed here, so I was just wondering where to go and what time people were meeting up.

Cheers,

Minehead June 23rd

Just read the WSM roundup and it sounds like you guys had a similar day to us in Minehead. We arrived just after one and started rigging 5.0s, then decided on 4.5s.

Thanks Sue, I started sailing when I was a kid, but gave up due to injury (non windsurfing) when I was thirty, but continued to mountain bike.

More Sunday the 19th and intro

I've been sailing since I was 13, but decided to give it up when I was around thirty due to a knee injury. Eight ye...
