I just wrote a whole load of stuff and published it and after reading it thought it was such trash decided I had to delete and start again! Think it is all due to a windsurfing hangover.
Have decided to do a short write up here about blistered hands and the best way to avoid a very painful scenario. But that's for another day, right now I have a cup of tea and a tablet waiting for me!!

Temperatures have gone up alot the past few days and it was lovely to be in a shorty, the sea is really warm and air temps were late 20's (around 80F), AND NO JELLYFISH!
Friday, May 23, 2008
Right now the forecast is showing wind increasing late Monday afternoon to 20 knots + Easterly (great!) and Tuesday carrying on Easterly around 21-22 knots. With a bit of luck it may even be more funneling into the bay. Doubt if the waves will be much - just little tiddlers probably, but hopefully enough to play around on. Hope to be wearing my shorty cos long wetsuit is getting a bit hot, but jelly fish have been quite bad so it may be a matter of wearing long wetsuit for protection.

John (http://maltayoungguns.blogspot.com) said he managed to carry on planing after a Spock which is pretty good going. Forcast for the coming week is zero wind, just temperatures rising!

Good forecast for tomorrow for a ESE 25knots with an air temp of 24C so not bad! Get down there early though cos wind is meant to drop off to a force 4 later on in afternoon. Just hope wind doesn't go too south.
On a sober thought:
As I write this I am seeing all the awful pictures on the news re the earthquake in China and typhoon in Burma. Feel a bit useless and bad thinking about enjoying myself in such comfort and thinking of luxurious past times when all these people are suffering and some still buried and are alive. Let's not forget these people - the least we can do is offer a prayer up for them and all those out there helping with these disasters.

The above is a holiday home belonging to a friend of mine. He, currently, has availability for summer. So if you still haven't booked your summer holiday and are interested in a holiday on the lovely island of Gozo, Malta contact me for more details. The house is VERY well appointed and has a lovely garden with its own herbal patch so you can add some tasty fresh herbs to your cooking.

View from the terrace
We are selling our flat/penthouse. It is situated in Mellieha Bay, Malta. We have a lovely view over agricultural land and up to the village church (front seat view for village festa fireworks!).
The balcony is quite large and lovely to have BBQ's on and eat outside during the warm months.
There are 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room. There is a small kitchen with dining area attached and the sitting room area looks out onto the balcony and view up to the church.
We also have a separate little study. It was originally built to be a washroom but we have converted it into a study because it has a fantastic view out over Mellieha Bay. There is also a small balcony. During the hot summer months it is nice and cool to sit out and watch the activity on the water.
As an extra option we have a large one car garage. We have actually fitted two very small cars inside but it is basically a one car garage. The common parts are beautifully finished and the lift takes you down to the garage level too. The bus stops are close by and one minute away is the beach. There are also some nice restaurants and pizzerias close by too. There is also a gym at one of the hotels near the beach.
The village of Mellieha has everything you want for shopping including banks, supermarkets, delicious bakery etc.
The only reason we are selling is because we plan to move to the sister island of Gozo in the near future.
If interested contact me thru my blog or you can also contact me thru my website www.gozofarmhouserentals.com .

Well I have managed to sail 3 days out of the past 4. I think that's pretty good going. I enjoyed every minute of it and still rearing to go. Yesterday the wind teased alot then picked up late afternoon and I changed up to a 5.5m and used my Mistral Pro 86L. Brilliant combination and fully powered up. I had a great time even though waves were small but it was fun and can't wait to get in the water again. Forecast right now is showing a strong SE (which tends to be gusty) for Saturday, but that's still a bit far off so will no doubt change - but fingers and toes crossed.

Another good day yesterday. Unfortunately due to change over day in Gozo only managed to get a late sail in - but better a good hour than nothing at all.
Above some pics taken over the past two days.
Today wind has disappeared but looks like it is picking up again to around force 6 for tomorrow.

The REALLY good news is that the weekend forecast is looking mightly good. Starting off on Friday afternoon with around 21knots of E then around 24knots for Sat and 21knots for Sunday. Bad news is I have changeovers in Gozo on Saturday but I have worked it all out how I am going to organise it so I can be back down here and in the water by around 2.30. If the forecast holds I CANNOT miss it, especially since it is a direction I love here in the bay with a few waves. If it holds I plan to surf till my hands are raw and bleeding - I can face the music after.
