Blustery Sunday Fun

With 25MPH winds kicking up and bright sunshine,all the kids with "wind Toys" came out to play.
Managed to assist a teenager who took his Mom out for the first time on his dingy and managed to capsize it on the first jibe .
Didn't know whether to let him drown as probably less agony than the verbal battering he was getting from his Mom
The guy with the brolly was a Star He had re-inforced a brolly and used it to propel his board. He was making about 5 knots, so seemed to work (although had me smiling!!)
That together with the windsurfers and the kite boarders made for an interesting afternoon
cheers Dal

MOM - MOM - how long have you been over there???

The brolly bloke was amazing - wonder if he was British??? Then again a true Brit would have used a black one!!!
