Spent the day on the Tornado with John and Richard, in great weather conditions. The wind stayed constant until we got back to the beach. Sea conditions were a mix of light choppy water inshore and some more challenging waves outside the bay. Lots of hull flying excitement and crashing waves. Landed on a beach near Makuchi and climbed to the top of the hill in search of somewhere for lunch. Minchikus everywhere but no restaurants. Bought some light lunch bits at a local shop and went back to the beach to eat, before heading back out into the action. Returned to the beach and dragged the boat onto the rack - seemed a lot heavier after the sailing workout. Drank a well earned beer afterwards and ate some banana muffins that Richard baked before breakfast;-)

Camera work was a bit sloppy today in the rough seas
