Can anyone do an eyeball report?  Is it worth trying to get to Coney this afternoon?

Cheers

Same.  Sat in work waiting for the nod.  The windy-o-meter at Malc's gives the thumbs-up, but the webcam is down, so unable to see if anyone's out.

Had one wasted trip this week and I'm gagging for it.  Very Happy

Tenby South beach worked perfectly today. Strapless on the 9m at high tide with a good swell running. It built all afternoon leading nicely to a well powered TT session. Add sunshine and it made for an awesome session. Don't know about going back in though, barely enough energy to lift my whiskey glass...

I'm going to Swansea bay, Windguru is forecasting a southerly with good weather and there will be an incoming neap tide for 1 or 2 pm. I'm going to sketty tomorrow in the morning. The forecast is 11 knots to 20 knots in gusts.

Was meant to be teaching tomorrow but a little mishap for Sarah on the MTB put a stop to that.....brake lever inserted into her inner thigh..hard/deep enough to bend it almost 90 degrees!

The ambulance had to do a spot of off roading just to get to us...eventually.

Sarah is now fine and back home some 7 hours later and after a few stitches!

Andy want to demo the Infinity  cheers

Pembrey may b the only place there'll b wind as the direction will b too southerly for Coney to have any.

Cheers Sarah - hope the leg heals quick for Portugal! I'll be staying off the MTB for a few weeks now!

Pembrey is a bit of a stretch for a mornings kiting...3.5hrs each way! I need to plan ahead for there.
Marc- Yes I'd like to demo the Infinity but will get a B+b and stay over. Am owed some days at work so might arrange something soon. If Coney won't work well today I'll wait.

Just by way of a note about Coney today. Porthcawl Surf Lifeguard Club are holding their nipper carnival - will kick off around 9 I would guess. The beach and surf line at the life guard building end of the beach will be very busy and will be part of the SLSA compitition

Sorry to hear about your accident Sarah, you've certainly been through the wars on water and land now. You'll have to 'tame it down' a bit for Portugal now!
