It was blowing. Nukin' winds and cold water made for an intimidating combo but it was great sailing. New 5mm wetsuit, beanie, mits, and a 3.7 were helpful.

Great to see so many other sailors out there getting it. I counted 11 sails and a bunch of kiters out on the water when I showed up at the parking lot.

2 quick questions:

1) Does the iwindsurf meter read high? (Is the actual wind speed on the water lower than what iwindsurf is reporting?)

2) Is it my imagination or is it actually windier upriver of the tripod metal channel marker (during an East wind)?

Sunday was Windy but Monday was Nuking.

The wind backed off just a bit on Sunday afternoon but remained strong day and night for over 3 full days.
