  lol, yes emma this is why i left the club ,NOTHING GETS DONE, as i said many times last night, we should distance our-selfs from the kiters and keep a low profile till the problerms at east beach calm down,.Or we get the press involved and go on the offencive,.anyway your one of these interwebb types, get a campaign on bebo face tube me-larky going,FREE THE EASTBEACH SURFERS,or something like that.p,s NICE to see SXWATERSPORTS and WETNDRY in the same room,it was like the 1970s cold war all over again,TWO TRIBES GO TO WAR,(frankie goes to hollywood). lol.

  Well Cliff - you certainly brought us all up to speed on the shoebury situation last night.

An idea - you could set up some kind of shanty housing (or bring the hearse) to east beach and live there in protest, with a "we shall not be moved" theme? I'll help you with some banners? Great views of the current tide and wind situation ... ? You'd be the shoebury wind oracle - the all seeing eye ...

  I like the Starvin Marvin look. Look on the bright side Martin, everyone who's had it have dropped a jean size or two.
The gate key thing is one of the things they are talking about at the AGM so maybe by the weekend it will be sorted.

April 06, 2010 - 07:43 PM

  mart, its probably the virus that everybodys got and not the water .?.is it diarrhorea and sickness?. but one thing i have notice that all the people i have talked to with these symptoms have one thing in common,THEY ALL SAILED IN THE RAY RESENTLY.might just be a coincidence.
212
April 06, 2010 - 05:13 PM
Emma

  So what are the symptoms Mart? Maybe we could get someone who knows about bacteria in the water to take a look before summer sets in and all and sundry are sick. Do you think it's from the water?
213
April 06, 2010 - 04:18 PM

  As the tide came in so did the wind. A really good afternoon. Just what we all need before going back to work tomorrow!

  Good session at The Ray today around mid day. About a dozen sailors, a few kites and a couple of seals watching the action. Looks like more of the same for tomorrow :)
230
April 05, 2010 - 08:18 AM
Emma

  I'm thinking chalkwell for high tide is looking much better. Wind and sun filling in as the day goes on. Anyone else getting down there for 2ish?
231
April 05, 2010 - 06:56 AM

  The board actually cost less because it was the kids version. Full respect to RRD for being brave enough to impose their own fat tax.
232
April 04, 2010 - 06:36 PM
spartan

  hi emma, i,ve looked at the weather forecasts and it dosen,t look windy till pm,?.(goodluck)on the ray.the seals will be going faster than you.lol.mart,do you fit in down on the ray with the rrd-ezzy crowd, as you sail gun sails and jp boards, you must hammer past them,no competition for you mate,lol,come back to the home of windsurfing (thorpebay)and try those free style moves in real sea conditions .lol. hope to see you mate.
233
April 04, 2010 - 06:22 PM
spartan

  the last entry wasn,t me.but saying that speedys 1399 RRD FREE STYLE BOARD infact cost 1499 due to he had to pick it up from brighton.is it the most expensive free style board in the country ?.or can anybody top that ?. lol.hope to see you on it tomorrow speedy.
234
April 04, 2010 - 06:18 PM
Emma

  Yep, the Ray for me too. It's lovely being out there, especially when the seals lay out on the sand bank and watch! It'll be a really nice way for those who haven't sailed much over winter, or at all ... to get back on the water and have really manageable conditions and go home with a smile! You always feel like a top sailor on the Ray :-D
235

  I can gybe but can also wake up early in the morning so i will still be heading for the ray.
236
April 04, 2010 - 06:07 PM
spartan

  hi guys, the bike meet ,due to the roadworks from the pier to kursaal,it will spill over all the way along the front(good luck).personally with a 5.30pm high tide,i would say sail t-bay,your get out 2pmish and after a good 3-4hour sail, your miss all the bikers leaving to go home as well,double buble. lol.but if you cant gybe and need the flat water like (speedy)to practise then go to the ray.lol, only joking speedy ,i bet you rip on that 1399 free style rrd 88lt board.?..
237
April 04, 2010 - 06:01 PM

  Hey hey, Ok sail today. Bit of everything and pretty windy at times. See you all down the Ray tomorrow.

PS Jimbo, there's a good massage parlour down Southchurch Road. You should be able to get some relief.
238

  im going ray in the morning to see how it is
239
April 04, 2010 - 02:20 PM
robert

  the bikers dont usually cause too many probs most head down about 10am an leave by 3pm. However with all the roadworks from the kursaal to pierhill i think most will head up westborne grove an down by chalkwell an stay down by the casino end so you shouldnt have any issues.
240
April 04, 2010 - 02:12 PM
Ed

  Am I missing something? Can anyone tell me about the bike thing tomorrow? Are those bikers going to use the A127 as I am travelling from London.... I just want to sail!!!
241
April 04, 2010 - 01:36 PM
Emma

  Yep, i agree, the Ray it is! Nice and early to avoid all those bikers on their way to the seafront.
242
April 04, 2010 - 12:38 PM

  Looks promising tomorrow, plan to walk out to the Ray at 9am. Can't wait!!!
243
April 04, 2010 - 12:21 PM

  Jimbo, get some volterol from the emergency chemist in hadleigh? And get on the net and find some simple back exercises and you might be recovered?
244
April 04, 2010 - 12:12 PM
whyme

  Jimbo,

Have you not heard of womens rights, it is her right now to lay the flooring, that is why women want equal rights,equality, isn't it!!!!!!!
sounds like you have no rights. lol.
245
April 04, 2010 - 10:56 AM
Jimbo

  Plus wifey had me laying laminate flooring all day yesterday, and as such my lower back is aching so the walk to the ray might be a push
246
April 04, 2010 - 10:49 AM
Jimbo

  The Ray might be a royal pain in the backside for me tomorrow, the ace cafe bike run pretty much will grid lock traffic nicely!
247
April 03, 2010 - 07:16 PM
speedy

  It's west with a little bit of north so it can only be Thorpe Bay at about 1pm.
Dear Easter Bunny, don't bother with piles of chocolate just a little bit of wind please.
