The above pic was a winner in the Kiteworld Magazine. Tom took this photo of Godfrey with his mobile phone. Lovely pic - love the way Godfrey is doing one of his 'signature' jumps in the middle of the sunset.

Today gave us a cold dying North Easterly wind, but it was perfect for the Kitesurfing community who made the most of it in Mellieha Bay.

North Easterly Wind




We had some great North Easterly wind on Sunday. Fortunately we sailed early so got a few hours in before the rain set in later on in the afternoon. During the night it turned more North East and the wind increased to gale force which brought in bigger waves. The East coastline of Malta was a terrific sight on Monday with way over mast high waves breaking all along from Ghallis down to Pembroke. It was a great sight to watch and no doubt some of the wave surfers were out in the afternoon.
Above are two stills taken from some video clips with the boom mounted GoPro camera. One was taken in the Channel during the week in a Westerly wind so the air is beautifully clear. The other was taken on Sunday in the very murky air of a North Easterly wind - the difference in clarity is quite amazing - humidity on Sunday was up to around 94%.

Help!


Regular followers of my blog will, obviously, notice I have finally gone away from the revolting pinky coloured blog page I had and changed it to a kinder looking blue. I just wish I could stretch the actual blog page to cover the screen. My good blogging friend, Horsey, very kindly gave me advice on how to do it but it is really complicated. Can anyone explain in an easy 123 steps on what to do or does one really have to be a computer nerd to be able to understand it all and edit the html knowing what all the letters are numbers are all about!!

The Best Way to Run a Marathon


Above are a couple of friends of mine - Mark is a keen windsurfer and yachtsman besides doing alot of other sporting activities and his wife Debbie is also a very good basketball player.
They had the sweetest little boy last year and it's great to see that not only has the baby NOT held them back but is now part of their sporting activities.
This weekend the Malta Marathon was held and I nicked this pic of them participating. I don't know who took it but once I find out I will credit the photographer on this post.
What a brilliant way to do the marathon............though my first choice would definitely be the one sitting in the buggy!!
