  Mike, please send that picture to the council, YUK. Couldn't get out today Cliff because Dawn had a baby scan. I dropped a few hints but I got the look.
Peter, no problems with the fin. I think the Ray is definitely the Friday/Saturday choice. Less offshore wind there unless Cliff decides to join us :)

  Just another question on the east beach key thing.

Are you able to park further down the car park in the normal bit and carry your gear to the sailing area if you dont have a key or will you get ticketed for such behaviour?

  Yeah, Mart, I was thinking the ray on Friday could be really good. Fingers crossed - it's been too long!

  with that sixty quid I could have bought some eight year old kit and become a real windsurfer!! Cliff, you would plane earlyier if you concentrated less on your guns and more on your buns :)

  sherlock, some of us have had keys for eastbeach for many years,only when the kiters turned did things go wrong, lets face it most of the problerms down eastbeach was down to them acting like (boyracers) anyway, so thats why the new changes have happened.let face it it easier to just cut the lock off dooooooh, tosser.

  firstly, speedy, it was a joint vote on you, me alf and tim ,and we all saw you didnt plane in 5knots- it was only when it pick up to 10knots you got going.as for you loosing 60 that between you and peter mate.anyway you should plane today.

  EastBeach: A parking fee will also be charged. There was talk of issuing a yearly permit for 50 just for East Beach but has not materialised as yet. The annual seafront permit (120) can be used.

  You're unbelievable Cliff. Six runs and planed five of them end to end. First run was upwind because it was onshore. Your big gob lost me sixty quid, stick a pie in it mate.

  Quick question on key business for East Beach. Does buying the key for 15 mean you dont then need to pay for parking at the meter. If so not a bad deal.

If you have to pay the meter as well do they nick the rest of wallet when you pay 15 quid, theiving bar stewards !!!!!

  speedy and the BET. SPEEDY lost a bet today,he said he could get planing in at the time 5knots,he DIDN,T,10 mins later the wind went up to 10-12knots and he semi-planed ,and claimed victory.as we said to you ,at 10 stone you plane early but not that early,10knots not 5knots.as the bet was for a fin,that speedy is selling for 40 ,if he won the bet peter had to buy it for 60,and if speedy lost he got it for free.so pay up speedy wheres pete,s fin lol,.

  Hi Mike,

Which department at the council do I have to ask for, or even better do you have a name of the keeper of the keys?

  Re East Beach. A key has to be purchased from the council for 15.00 so that you can get in at the Blackgate entrance... so that only Kite/Windsufers and boat users have access to the area. Not fully happy with situation both the kite club and EWC are in negotiation with the council . Subject is part of the EWC AGM. The more members the bigger our voice.

  Hi All

I was just wondering if anyone has been down to East Beach since the "improvements". I just had a drive there myself and was met by three bollards blocking the way to the launch site/slip way. Am I missng something or has Southend council just blanket banned everyone from using this area.
