I'm going off Windguru and XC Weather but should be ok even on a pure Easterly - there's always the harbour wall to catch me....

I did and you saved yourself some diesel - I'd love to lie and say 'best session ever' but it was pants. Wind meter was reading up to 15 knots around 2 pm but seemed to drop and I just ended up going down wind. Probably an Infinity day but I couldn't be bothered to pump up a second kite.

Just teasing Marc about letting us all know that he's on holiday again Sonny, as per you use it as an excuse to act like a cock.

No, I have a fairly passive expression and think "Oh look it's Sonny, trying to get my attention again". Like the girls did in the playground.....

I'm hoping it'll be worth my while coming over from Bristol. Would appreciate anyone local to or on the beaches reporting what it's actually like down there. I intend to be there for about midday so will leave about 10.30.

Alun, if Marc doesn't have it back already i'd like to meet up and see/get the kite off you.

Cheers.

There was nothing, nothing, nothing at all! Didn't even get changed...coffee at Malc's and walk along the coastal path in the drizzle...hmmm. Let's hope next weekend is better...it's getting frustrating!

The wind teased, just before the drizzle set in. Was 10 - 18, then the rain stopped play

Sat in the van having Tea & cake while the rain washed the windscreen. You gotta love winter and wind sports in the UK
