Surprise Stokage for Sunday!
Leah and I made it back to Belews Sunday for some standup paddling. A south wind changed our plans and we had a great day of windsurfing! From 3pm to after dark the wind was averaging > 15mph- I spent lots of time planning and in the straps overpowered with a 7.5 sail. Early planning boards are the ticket to light air- some of the time earlier in the day I was planning with a 5.0 and a 4.7 in the gusts...
Leah was on the Starboard GO and had trouble holding the 4.7. The forecast called for 9-12 mph which would have been a good choice but the actual wind called for something more like a 3.5. Good thing we have training sails in the container on site!
