The van is packed and I am ready for Weymouth.

Two great days of sailing in Guernsey. Sunday onshore wavesailing and yesterday a speed session at a new spot.

Yesterdays wind was North East and the tide was high, usaully this provides no speed strip at all but when passing Grande Havre Bay I pulled in and at the Northern end the wind was blowing over the headland and offshore providing nice smooth water. Not knowing if it was sailable I opted for a 7.3m on the Isonic 101. The strip is only aproximatly 250m long, giving you 100m to beer away and speed up and 50m to slow dowm. 36.7 knots was my top speed, real fun to be out on flat water just wished it was a longer strip.
