3 Awesome Days

Lake Erie Long Beach

Warm and windy :-)

Sailed tues. wed. and thurs.

Tuesday was so fun.....lots of sailors! At one point I counted 18 sails on the horizon!

Fun watching the talent out there....lay down 360's.....jumps.....someone wave riding off the point.

Wednesday was a real surprise.....my friend Sharryn and I had the water to our self's for awhile.

We rigged bigger not expecting much and left the water with it blowing 22 to 27 knots!

Didn't have time to re-rig and in all honesty I physically exhausted myself....it was everything I had in me to get back having the sail ripped out of my hands repeatedly on my last outside water start. I was pinching so hard to slow down that I was running right in to the point.....it was take a chance and go down wind or swim my stuff in again! That was one wild ride!

I can't believe Sharryn was hanging on to that 6.2!!!!

So jealous K was able to rig 5.5 and a smaller board and maximize the session.

Thursday was a wee bit milder with a slow start but by the time I left the water it was blowing 18 to 20 knots. Sharryn got another 45 minutes ....well done!

I expect her arms are a foot longer now :-)

Time for me to pack it in but Ke and Tony were still ripping it up.

I averaged my 3 days to 2 1/2 hour sessions
