Thursday 15 February - Boulmer - Martin Haigh

Arrived at Boulmer on the high tide (2 ish) just before Ally, Mike and Rob. The wind at home wasn't very inspiring but as you drove up the coast the trees began to sway more and more. 30 knts S it was as we rigged, and a little gusty, Ally only brought big kit so stayed dry, Rob rigged the smallest he'd brought (5.8) and me and Mike were on 4.5. Mike headed for the flatish water to the south of the Haven while Rob and I stayed upwind of the undulating, moored fishing boats, Rob catching some air and I just managing to waterstart in the swell! After a short rest we joined Mike to the South and the falling tide brought flater water as the wind turned more Easterly and became less gusty.
A great afternoon session with Rob going absolutely ballistic with his 5.8 and Mike pulling off numerous waterstarts.
