15 turned out on Saturday 6th April, all hoping it wouldn't be quite as windy as advertised. With gusts to 60mph that turned out to be very wrong! Most had a go; a short go (Graham, one of our beginner/intermediates managed a 30 meter stretch before throwing in the towel). My rib will be sore for a while after catapulting heavily onto the boom, Norbert damaged his board, our club banners were both damaged ... so business not quite as usual! But 5C warmer than it had any right to be did at least feel good ... and 3 new members signed up.
