08 Sept 2012 - Hampton to Cerberus and back

Gt the 7m out for a great session. Probably could have trialed the newly bought 10m, but the wind has been very heavy this week and the forecast was for some fronts to push through so the 7m it was.  Down wind to the Cerberus was fun, some big carving turns to the ship.  The ship is almost totally underwater now.  I went around the backside of the ship and the wind was dying out quite badly, tried tacking across and the big cliffs certainly played havoc with the wind.  I ended up - along with Pete - having to walk along one of the beaches a little to get a decent tack to get out again.
Cut it pretty fine back into the bay at Hampton - between the rock wall and the signal post ! - but happy to have had quite a long duration session.  The wind wasn't as good in the bay as out the back, so it probably wouldn't have been great for trick action anyway.
Great fun, very tired and good to have the flexibility of the put put.
