|Gregg taking one of his last waves as the wind dropped|
Today didn't go that will for me, and I am a bit disappointed by some mediocre conditions for probably the last sail of 2012. Probably it was just me as loads of others seemed to enjoy it, but I thought, that frankly the conditions were pretty crap unfortunately, and for whatever reason, again probably just me I couldn't get anything out of it today at all. I have to admit it, I am a Kimmeridge blasphemer. Like I always say, to myself anyway, never go there if the wind doesn't have North in it!
|No north innit - I was promised a peeling reef break!!!|
We hadn't planned to got there, Ringstead was meant to be the destination. I have never sailed there. However, I still haven't sailed there. I think we got mis-informed about the tide and arrived there just as the reef was starting to show itself. Big arse. we looked at Overcoombe, but that was small and gusty.

|Some Dude on a Chopper having some fun upwind of the reef at "surfers"..hmm - imagine saying that the other way round|
|Gregg not liking my new board in bolt onshore!|
|Some dude who has the same sail as Gregg, but clearly isn't, although I thought it was until I noticed the pink helmet.|
|Man and Dog re-unite, the happiest moment of the day!|
|Some dude having way more fun than I did!|
Right now it is super windy outside, there is a really slim chance that I could get out tomorrow, however I also have the wetsuit rash from hell on my neck, I look like I have been hung from the rafters by some old frayed piece of downhaul rope, hopefully I will go to bed and then wake up in a chirpier mood!
