Big Gear Desperation

Lake Ontario Paradise Park Ajax

Got the nug from Fathom that there was wind at his place. I popped down there and looked like 12 near shore and easily 20 out there. I rigged up the Go 140 and 8.5 M and schlogged off shore to wind line to where I got planning. I sailed way out but after jibing I realized I was running on my apparent wind. Schlogged back in and let lots of down haul out of sail and less out haul too.I got planing again for a bit but couldn't keep it going for long. Still nice to get out but frustrating watching Fathom maintaining his planing on his 180L board. Looking at the readings after it was apparent the wind dropped off quite a bit.
