Frustrating day yesterday, neither completing my work particularly well, seeming to mistime most things and even missing the wind. By the time I got to the beach in the evening, it was sunny and the wind was actually fairly solid. Rigged my new 5.2 and was underpowered on a 75ltr, that said it was still fun to play in the small waves in pretty much side shore. Eventually after further thought I realised I had over rigged the sail, and it was spilling too much wind, when I did finally adjust the downhaul it all worked much better, but as you can see a few extra litres wouldn't have gone amiss; as Ian (see photo) was flying (as usual).
