Back in September the tail of (what had been) Hurricane Katia hit the west coast of Scotland. I haven't been windsurfing much recently but Iain and Fraser were keen to try sailing in the strong winds. The bay we sailed in was quite sheltered from the waves but the wind was really strong and gusty (ripping the sails out of our hands at times) making windsurfing very difficult. Still it was fun trying. After we packed up I took a drive through town to see how big the waves were on the less sheltered sections of the Clyde.
