Like the good old days!

Having had a bit of a return to form with some mountain bike downhill records in the morning, I thought that a windsurf was in order today as well. Just like the old days! The wind was howling, the seas were big and the air was a lot warmer than it had been. What else...

Summer Sailing at Home

After a busy weekend away in North Wales Surf Skiing, Mountain Biking and Running along the Coast Path it was nice to be back at home. The busyness continued of course and summer was being kind to us. Wall to wall sunshine on Monday had me out mowing the lawn and gardening once the indoor...
