Third day of Formula

Ontario Ajax Paradise

Friday Formula x2hrs.

Sunday Formula x 1hrs post thunderstorm poor Will still learning post thunderstorm that Ontario weather is finicky and walk of shame is part of the sport.

Today sunshine 14-16 x 2hrs then 16-18 x 2hrs all by myself (Jetmetch was stuck at work/trafffic could not make it on time, rINR playing wind snob).

About 100km covered, 22,4 knots top speed downwind, went straight for the nuclear plant/Frenchman but had to stop earlier due to wind dropping near shore. It was very windy 200m out and steady.

Makes for wicked upwind and even more wicked thighs screaming downwind in building swell. That great fun sensation of glide and going faster than the wind!
