Carrado, a visiting Italian kitesurfer who contacted me via this blog, came along with his girlfriend too.
It was nice sailing out in 15 knots. We heaved to and had some lunch out past the shipping channel. On the way back the wind picked up to 25+ knots, which was quite exciting. The boat handled it well and was sailing fast.
Stuart was kitesurfing at St Kilda and said people had to drop their large kites quickly when the storm front arrived.
