Cyprus Holiday Videos

Technology is pretty good sometimes. My photos and videos from my phone get automatically sent to Google Photos so that I have an online backup of them – along of course with about 6 other backups on various Hard Drives and then backups of those Hard Drives, another of which is in the Cloud.

Updating the Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station

I initially installed the weather station in 2005 at the request of a number of kite-surfers and windsurfers from the Midlands.

Boxing Day Windsurf with Mast Mount for GoPro

My Christmas Day windsurf wasn’t great as I had too small a sail Boxing day was perfect though. I managed to get out and give my new Mast Mount for a GoPro camera a trial in perfect conditions. It was a glorious day with wall to wall sunshine and a decent 25-30 knot WNW wind blowing. The...
