It fits!!

Guelph Lake West Beach

Raced to Guelph Lake after work to try and catch whatever was left of the wind. It turned out pretty good in the end but it really gusty for most of the time. The gusts where plane worthy but the wind didn't flatten out (and speed up) until the end of the sesh, which actually made the sailing easier. I'm really getting comfortable with the bigger sail (8.8), I even did some more beach/shallow water start practice, nothing too crazy, just flying the sail. It would all fall apart when I'd try to step up.

On a side note; my regular f150 pickup gear hauler is getting a new exhaust manifold, which only leaves my 2 door, 2+2 seater, hatch back. As it turns out you CAN fit a longboard(?) and two rigs it. (The google machine said it wouldn't work)

Sorry about the upside down pics.
