much needed windsurfing fix

Lake Erie Side Road 26

Well, after one week without wind since last super Saturday, Oct. 30., we finally got some decent wind on Sunday: Went to LBCA, no wind; Waited for 20 minutes, still no wind; Decided to go home but when passing by Side Road 26, saw white caps. Rigged a 6.5 and sailed for more than 3.5 hours. Nothing fancy, just basic back & forth. The wind for the first hour was not steady but the last 2.5 hours was solid. My newly bought dry suit kept me warm and the water was not too bad, sailed w/o gloves. There were a couple of kiters out but I was the only one windsurfing. Overall, a good day.
