Underpowered, Over Heating and Under the Weather

I had a busy day at the University working from 8-5 on a day I don’t normally work yesterday. So, I was looking forward to getting out on the water today as the forecast looked good. Westerly’s all day long, 25- 30 knots – what more could a windsurfer want? I therefore headed over to...

Aberdyfi and Back

Plans were afoot on Sunday for a bike ride with Colin. We were going to head north, along Tal-y-Llyn and then around to Tywyn and Aberdyfi before heading back home. However, wind was forecast as well so maybe I should go windsurfing instead. Sure enough, Sunday dawned bright and windy and I had to make...

The Weeks Roll By

There still isn’t much happening here really. We are continuing to stay as shielded as we can as the virus is still out there. We hardly even noticed that the school holidays had begun. The fact that we’ve all been at home for so long now meant that there wasn’t really a noticeable difference. I...

Full on Windsurfing at Ynyslas

Well, I did say that Friday afternoons windsurf session would be a warm up for Saturday and that was indeed the case. Saturday morning was pretty grim. Stormy NW winds, lots of rain and cold too. Not very inviting after the sunshine on Friday. Things were set to clear up a little though so eyes...

New Sail Day

After I discovered a big tear in my 5.7m sail the other day it was time for some shopping. A new 5.7m sail was needed and at the same time I thought it was time to update a few other ageing bits of windsurf kit too. I went for a 2019 Gun Sails Horizon. I’ve...

Time for some Shopping

Well, Tuesday’s windsurf session didn’t quite go to plan. As I rigged my 5.7m sail I noticed a big rip in the top of it. By then I was already in my wetsuit, on the beach with all my kit rigged so I decided just to go with it anyway. It’s not ideal sailing with...

Saturday Activities

Just a normal Saturday here really. I was up early so managed to get some work done before Anna got up. The tide was too high to get out on the sea so next up was an hour on the turbo trainer which actually felt quite easy, and then a quick run around Ynyslas. By...

Storm Dennis Windsurfing

didn’t quite manage to get out windsurfing in the midst of Storm Dennis. Time, tides and other commitments just meant it wasn’t quite possible. It had nothing to do with the fact that the hailstones would have hurt, the winds were crazy and it would have been a little scary out there on my own!...

Back to the Old Days

With wind forecast last weekend I thought I’d message Steve and invite him down for a sunny, summer windsurf session, just like the old days! Steve used to come here almost every weekend to windsurf and certainly came when there was some decent wind forecast. I don’t think he’s been windsurfing here for about 4...

Summer Sailing

Just a few quick clips from my windsurf session today as my GoPro was a little misted up, it wasn’t quite set up properly and I can’t be bothered to go through hours of footage looking for the best bits! It was a top notch windsurf session though so hopefully you’ll get the gist from...
