I did a few tacks up towards the pier then I did a fantastic long run following the waves breaking on the outer sand bank down to Rye. All those waves to myself!
I tacked back on the return journey coming into the shallow calmer water closer to shore. You can see from my track log I had no problems getting back up wind. It would have been a great day for a downwinder to Sorrento or Portsea.
Fun in the winter sun.
My (broken) little finger was fine in the plastic splint under the neoprene glove.
The coffee and pastries afterwards at Baker Boys cafe was excellent too.
