Yes it was not that rough up here, about 3M swell but much shorter and breaking. Ther was quite a few boats left the marina, with all but the bigger yachts turning back before the end if the channel.
Went out solo, no kids so had a bit more chace to play.
At times I was only manageing 10Kts into the waves, any more and I was airborn with a bit to big a brop into the troughs, even for me
. Managed to keep very dry all thing being equal.
Once we got a following sea it was good fun doing 25-30Kts surfing down waves then breaking through quite a few white horses at the tops.
Only was out for 1.5 hours and I was knackard, my legs was gone. Its days like today that dry suits really come into their own.
Got a few looks when I get back into the marina, most people say round taking, think they thought I was mad going out in a rubber boat in that!!, they dont know what they are missing
