How windy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Image

The 18th of January 2007 will no doubt go down in history as the windiest day of my life!!

Image

I'd guesstimate 70Knots, the local weather station said 84mph. Motorways were closed, houses blown down and acne blown off teenagers..

Image

We arrived at 9am, but sadly didn't pluck up the balls to launch until 3pm..

Image

This is the first time in my life I've had to sit it out! Oh how I wish I owned a 4m race sail..

Image

And even more gutted was Whitey, who'd just sold his 4.5 and 5m Vapour, before today I'd have questioned why he ever owned them..

Image

We were joined by Martin Van Muers who whopped us all with a 49Knot run on his 4.2 Stealth. Bloody impressive as it wasn't exactly flat water!

Image

I've got no windsurfing pics...      :(
