Windsurfing, Airplanes and a Snapped Harness Line

The North-East Monsoon winds have picked up after Chinese New Year and the heavy rains. Today's sailing was very pleasant, with some nice long stretches of fully powered reaching, although there were some occasional gusts and lulls. I tried the Drift Innovation HD170 video camera, and mounted it on my mountain bike helmet.

I managed to capture a couple of airplanes flying overhead as they were preparing to land at Changi Airport. Also, my harness line (starboard side) snapped so I hung on to the boom and planed almost all the way back to shore. Wonderful, except my lower back and arms were really hurting.


Here's the GPS details, top speed 42.9 km/h:
