WoW – Week 13

Another windy Thursday clashing with a 7pm high tide meant no sailing for WoW this week. Instead we talked through ways of checking the wind and sea conditions to know when it is safe to sail. Also covered was how to safely launch and recover from the beach in differing conditions. The ladies also benefited from recapping tacking land drills. The windy weather was discussed in relation to how to depower, using controls on the sail.

The session was broken up by a RNLI and coastguard search for a missing windsurfer from earlier in the evening around 6pm. If anyone has any details on this contact the coastguard.  Thankfully this turned out to be a false alarm.

Thank you to Callum for helping run this week’s session. Looking forward to seeing you next week
