Were in Burry Port do you guys kite, is it at the beach next to the harbour?
I'm wondering if I'll make it down before dark, or should I stay local at Aber and hope for the best?

If anyone fancies a trip down West on the weekend text me 07914 389097.
Depending what day it is I'm up for it.

Hi Rob
I should be there for 6-ish. 
I know I won't have much time on the water but f**k it!
I'm desperate. 

Is it ok to kite there on my own just in-case you guys have left before I get there?

Another cracking day, another lit on 7m (the biggest I've used so far)
It's actually been non stop work/kite/work/photo/work/kite
Up early and not even ate anything till 8-9pm most days as so much to do.

Yahoo! Very much looking forwards to the fun and mayhem the change in the weather is going to bring. Think I'm going to give "sober October" a try and put all the money I will save towards a new winter steamer. I'm not as hard as Der - board shorts and a rash vest my ass!!

Ps for every Pound in weight I lose during my sobriety I will donate a £ to the channel crossing fund

My starting weight as of today is exactly 100.00KG - hope it's going to be much less in 31 days time

Cheers Steve, we will know on Thursday for definite if the crossing is going ahead. You can track us live on the FB page and anyone is welcome to come and cheer us in on Swansea bay, there'll b a big crowd of people.
As for warm winter gear we have just had all our winter stock in so give us a thought / shout when you r ready to get your new wetsuit.

For those club members who have signed up for the clinic this weekend, I have spoken to Lewis we have decided that Saturday won't work with the tides at Rest Bay which is the only real option for the NW that is forecast. We will therefore be making a call tomorrow afternoon on Sunday so fingers crossed the wind gets a little stronger than is currently forecast as I'm sure no one wants to participate in a clinic with only marginal winds.

Think we're going look at the wind in the morning and go from there, on deciding what time we'll be down.

We'll also be going out on the mtb on Sunday morning, up at Glyngorrog, the whites trail, if anyone would like to join us, we'll probably be meeting in the car park at 9-9.30.

I'm going to try and get out before the rain arrives at Aber if there is enough.
Please take care as the rain comes later today, there is a very will defined squall line showing up over Ireland which is maybe heading this way. in any case please keep an eye over your shoulder while you are out.
