So nice to be on the water again; there have been few good wind days this winter. I missed the last one due to a fracture in me left little finger (fell over in a paddock!). It was no problem today wearing the small finger splint under neoprene gloves.
I did some long runs and a couple of speed runs back in clocking a max speed of 46 km/h. It wasn't crowded. There was some bay swell to surf too.
The wind strengthened for the second half hour with some gusts up to 35 knots - about the safe limit for the Union 10m fully depowered.
It wasn't too cold with booties, gloves and a helmet on but it was a chilly day. We headed to Brighton for a nice coffee afterwards.
