Kitesurfing downwinder from Peggs Beach to Stanley East Inlet

Session 425.  First kitesurfing on our 2017 Tassie trip cured my cabin fever.

Tasmania kitesurfing trip Day 2.

The wind forecast dropped out on the East Coast - a large stationary high pressure system over the Tasman was playing havoc with the wind.  So we drove 4.5 hours to Stanley and scored some wind.  .

Stu and I rigged up and did a nice downwinder from Peggs Beach to the East Inlet at Stanley.  The rest of the crew drove on to the East Inlet.

The water was clear and the scenery stunning.  The waves were not huge but provided some variety.  I had enough power on my 10m kite to enjoy the trip.

We went past the inlet then back in it to join the others.  This was a nice 13km run, a worthwhile tour.
