Happy New Year - lets hope for a better 2011
I've yet to run the numbers but as I'm sure you know 2010 was pretty poor for wind. I think I managed to go wave sailing about 25 times and 7 of those times were in one week in Tenerife!! There were some pretty memorable sessions at Perelle and one or two little gems at Vaz as well as a couple of epic waveriding days at Vaz in the spring - but all in all a pretty poor turnout on the wind front. Of course things are starting to look up. The North Atlantic Oscillation seems to be strenthening again meaning the blocking high that we've have for nearly 2 months (normally it's one or two weeks!!!!) will move north pulling the low pressures up from the south. However we shall see.
