I was very excited going into this weekend. It is Summer, I have tanks, I have boat, I can still manage to haul myself into boat. These are all the ingredients needed for a lot of fun without drowning.
All day Saturday it rains like crazy. Thunderstorms that bring no wind. I stay inside sulking.
Finally, on Sunday afternoon the weather clears but even so there is little wind. Notwithstanding I slowly reach across Nagahama bay to the Cliffs of Zampa and the best diving in the world.
The video only captures 10% of the amazingness.
I then have a very long sail home. The wind such as it is, blows more or less towards me. I set off on long tacks. The worst thing about sailing is not high wind and dreadful seas, it is gentle winds blowing against you. I make very slow progress but frankly who cares? It is a magnificent evening.
Not quite the weekend I had anticipated but incredible all same.
