Big Wind Thurs.

Wow! Another day of wind, so I’m starting a new thread. What a forecast for November - warm & strong E wind all day. I plan to sail tomorrow mid-morning at Vanns.

Please post if you plan to go.

Lunch time before it gets rowdy. No, I will not be rigging the 8.0 tomorrow.

Re: Big Wind Thurs.

I was there. I'm pretty sure Alan wasn't Blush (just pretty sure, I've been wrong before). Barrett, Ed, Kim, Paul, winger whom I haven't met yet, Chris P. Dave D was the hero, driving Paul back to his gear.

12-15 at times. 15-25 at others. Not bad and only a little drizzle.

Yes, a bit of a kitemare there at the end the day for me. Big thanks to Dave D for looking out for me. Did manage to get a few nice videos before things went awry.
