Overpowered but that's ok

Hamilton Harbour Burlington - CCIW

Whew! 30kt+ gusts kept things interesting on a 5.8. I flattened out the sail as much as allowable and cranked the downhaul as low as it would go. So much fun blasting across the water, wish I had my GPS as I am sure I set a personal speed record. The sun was setting but the wind kept picking up. Great night!

Weather Conditions

Overpowered for my sail size. Choppy on the way out but smooth (small) wave riding on the way in.
