It shouldn’t be a huge surprise to me that I’ve come to one of the world’s premier windsurfing venues and there’s no wind!
OK, day 1 was good, nudging F5 with chop to add to the fun, but then day 2 dropped to F3 with a period in the afternoon when, in the right location and a 7m sail, you could hit a fast plane and even throw in some gybes, but today…nothing. If it were just one day, that would be fine. I’m not as young ad I used to be so a day of rest ain’t all bad. Otherphil and I played tennis and swam while Dicky-T hooked up to work and emailed all day!
So boo-hoo, one day lost. Except it looks utterly rubbish for the next two days as well! Forecast suggests that there might be decent wind for Friday, our last full day here!
I guess it could be worse. A friend of mine went all the way to Hawaii and was becalmed for half his stay! Now that’s cruel.
I need to enter a Zen-like state of calm. How much better is it here than at work? Now that’s the thing to bear in mind.
