In a nutshell

Columbia River The Gorge

Sailed the Gorge from the 10th through to the 14th.

First time at the Gorge for us.....wind was not what I expected but it is supposed to be an off season.

Rented from Big Winds and the service and price was very good.

Got to try a brand new 78 JP freeride, 84 JP freeride and 105 Quattro

The Quattro was my fav.

Tried a 4.2 and 4.7 Naish Force and a 5.0 and 5.3 North Ice.

First time on skinny stuff....I won't run out and buy it but it was nice.

My husband hurt his knee and couldn't sail but let me keep his rentals for more board and sail range.

Sailed the Event Site, Roosevelt, and Doug's Beach 2x's......a great day at Roosevelt and one really good day at Dougs I showed off my swimming skills at the Event Site.

It was a good time and made better by being with a solid group of friends to watch over each other.

The current was strong and the barge traffic frequent.
