22 Mar 2014 - KS weekend - Hampton to St Kilda

Alwyn offered to pick us up from St Kilda, so James and I jumped at the chance to do a downwinder.  Wind was just enough - going between 15 to 20 knots.  We headed off and it was fairly light from Hampton to just after Brighton, so a lot of work was going into the kite.  After Brighton we got to check out a yacht race and the wind picked up to make it a lot easier to make headway.  About 5 skydivers sailed down into Elwood, which was great to watch.  Mucked around with riding some small waves closer in to Elwood, I can see how much fun it would be to be on a wave with the surfboard - once I've got this gybing deal nailed that will be the next challenge.
Pulled into St Kilda very happy to have made the most of the day.
