Monday 28th August

Bracklesham Bay with a 5.8 on the 95l FSW. Wind was a bit gusty from the NW but the Chimet archive shows F4/5 for the time I was sailing (1130-1430). Only dropped off the plane a handful of times, no waves, but some chop for hopping. Nice and sunny, water temperature has dropped a few degrees already though :(

Bracklesham with 5.8 and FSW. The wind was a nice WNW direction ie only slightly onshore, blowing ~ 18knts but no swell, well maybe 6" :) . Nice and sunny, water very warm.

Monday 31st July

Solid 5.0 day at Bracklesham. Used the FSW board but could easily have been on the waveboard, the Chimet archive shows an average 25 knts for the time we were out. Caught the tide just right and was rewarded with clean waves, up to head-high from low to mid-tide. The wind was very onshore, but it was great for backside-riding and aeriels and you could carve hard up into the wave to jump on the way out.

As ever, totally uncrowded.
