Gusty and Frustrating - Hamilton Harbour

Hamilton Harbour Burlington - CCIW

Got held up at work and didn't arrive to good ol'd HH until 5:45pm. Thought I missed the best of the day, but there was still some wind left. I did NOT enjoy this wind direction nor the gust/lulls. Report read 7-24kts, and it was just that. Overpowered on the 6.7 flying out of control, then the wind would die to the point I'd often fall over.

Did get a few runs in and my tacks are starting to get real polished, so I'm happy about that.

Definitely a night that tested my skills and kept me on my toes. Was super hot in my 6/5/4 suit! Next time I'll use something thinner.
