NEW YEAR'S DAY
After a breakfast of berroca and strawberries we went to Safety Bay to windsurf. We were the first sailors to arrive but the wind was definitely blowing hard. We both had a greasy hangover hamburger to gain some energy before sailing and rigged up the 5.2m sail for David. I spent some time instructing him in the ways of short board sailing and using the harness and in a while he was up and planning. It was a fantastic day on the water and quite pretty too as there were about 60 sailors out with all kinds of equipment - some new and some very old. Towards the end of the day David had an incredible catapault (going over the handle-bars) and pulled the mast-track out of the brand new board! Disaster, panic, frustration…swearing too. But a phonecall to Perth and a 2 hour round trip back to the shop to have it replaced and fitted under warranty had the problem resolved.
