Shipping weather forecast = gales!
"The Meterological Office has issued a gale warning in Portland, Wight and Dover".......
During a brief lull in the rain, we decided to go for a stroll along the deserted and unspoilt end of the beach at Weymouth. The wind, however, hadn't let up and we discovered that the local kite surfers were out in force. It is a brilliant spectacle. These guys are experts and can manage to sail elegantly in harmony, and can manage to lift high out the waves and do mid-air manoeuvres that are stunning.
It seems as if the sport needs several skills - they made it looks so easy. I found it difficult to capture an image that shows exhilarating it was to watch. And also impossible to catch someone midair (the last one doesn't do it justice) ~They turned a windy stroll by the sea into something quite unexpected. I hope when the Olympic sailing events are held here in 2012 they are as much fun to watch.
