It was definitely one of those 'funny' days! Not much beach left at the end either.

I may use today as an 'admin' day....

I'm really hoping it swings round.
Worth a shot, any other beach will be too far away for me before the sun sets.
I might have to wait until tomorrow.

Looks to have swung a bit more southerly than forecast, and less strong, as it always is from that direction. Was hoping for an after work session at Aber. Still early, things may improve.

Looks like it's gonna be OK at Aber, so I'll be there around 5pm too Hicks.

Good luck with the crossing Sarah (and everyone else) hope the wind holds out for you. I'll not be around to help out unfortunately, but I'll be keeping an eye to your progress.

It was tough leaving home last Sunday when it was obvious it was going to be a cracking day at rest and Aber but it was well worth it in the end.

So stoked to say 3 x British champ! ! Full report to follow.
Heading back today in time to head back to Woolacombe tomorrow...can't wait!!
