Sun 28 Jan: Boulmer - Martin H
Four Boulmer Seals were out today Me, Mike, Ally and one of our namesakes made and early appearance. We gathered at 11 but it was high tide and as good surfing waves were still getting past the reef we decided to wait a while and leisurely rig 4.5, 5.8, 6 and 6.3, not letting on which one the seal was using

Peter and family turned up just before we hit the water, with a mixed bag of sails, Mike had the best of it on his 4.5, Ally got totally trounced with his 6.3 and I was up and down with 5.8, to be fair to Ally it was Up and Down very much and all sizes were needed at some point during the afternoon. Mike changed up to 6m just as Ally took a nasty gouge to the shin

In all a good afternoon sail, mild temperatures, flat water, friendly wildlife, friendly photographers (more to come) and after some gloating by Mike I finally managed to get hooked in and both feet in the staps on the last run of the day, now why haven't I done that before
