Was not a success. The guru looked good but windyty was a bit less convincing. Still, we tried.

When we arrived I measured 14-20 avg 16 which was almost enough for big sails - rigged 6.0 but by the time I got on the water the avg was down to 15 and with a bit of a current and shorebreak it was slogville.

Conditions were tame apart from shorebreak and waves lekker but the blue-bottles not so lekker.

Called it after one attempt and re-measuring the wind now down to 14. We really expected it to pick up but it never did. The graph from the windmeter at the south breakwater tells the same story.

Sigh.
