Hot and Windy
There is not many days on Stuart Causeway that you see people on 3m sails. Yesterday was one of those days that no matter what size you rigged at times it seemed to be too much. Winds were SW/W and one could sail either north or south side of the island. Having the right size board and sail was imperative. I was happy to have half that combination. My 80 liter board was sitting comfortably at home, but at least I had the 4.2m sail that I downhauled as much as I possibly could and with the 95l JP board was able to make a few less than comfortable runs to the sandbar and back to the East Island. It was not until I borrowed Ron's board that I felt in control and able to enjoy what seemed to be 40+mph winds.
