Great SE Wind

We had some pretty decent wind last week. A high set up off our coast and created a SE wind on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday Jon and Ron got the best of it from 9 till 11am and I think they rigged 6.5 or 7.0's. I arrived at noon and the wind had backed down and ended up rigging an 8.5 on my formula board. Even then I had to hunt for gusts frequently to get on plane. Thursday was a different story. It was a bright sunny and warm day and I was well powered on a 6.0 with my 101 futura. The rig felt light and the board was fast, I had a great time. I didn't sail Friday but when I looked at the wind history it looks like another good day. There was a good turn out of sailor on the two days I was there.
