Kitesurfing at St Kilda with a tour to the channel

Session 343.  Great kitesurfing in a late sea breeze.  After carefully negotiating the barrage of learner kites on the shore I headed out.  I saw Stuart downwind as I passed the end of the breakwater. I was on a good tack and nicely powered so I kept going - a tour eventuated.

I crossed the Spirit of Tasmania channel - the ship was still at the wharf - and kept going until I came to the main channel markers. Then I turned and headed back upwind of the St Kilda harbour breakwater, coming up close the beach.  I followed the breakwater back to open water and did some nice slalom turns to get back in.

I did a few runs in the kiddy pool wary of shallow water and the many boats on swing moorings. Lovely light with the sun going down.  But the water is not very clean . . .

Overall, another very nice session.
