Wednesday, Hurghada

Wind still with us, although dropping of at about noon. Spent best part of 3 hours blasting in and out this am, 7.5m being a good match for the conditions. Now very tired and a little sore, pay back I guess for being so inactive over the winter months, two more days to go, its going to be a challeng...

Wind dropped over lunch, 7m for the afternoon, flatter water though :) The kit is amazing what with the center only being...

Greetings from foca

Good winds, if a little gusty for me, for our first two days, yesterday’s mid choice was 5.5, today, probably a 6. Decided to give some of the other acti...

Would be nice to ...

Re: Stithians Saturday......

Another full days sailing, we all thought the conditions were stronger on land when rigging, only to be underpowered when finally on the water, that said a full day in the end with very sore fingers to prove the point. Similar conditions forecast tomorrow, will the body last....,,
