Wind history for Anaho Island at Pyramid Lake shows 27 knots gusting to 40 knots. It felt that way too. I never felt fast or in comfort zone, holding back in gusts and feeling underpowered inbetween. Maybe 6.3 would have been better choice, who knows??? Having to sail on so many bits of new gear in conditions like this was not perfect but starting to feel where it needs to be. Speed run was broad, so lots of rolling chop. It was cold too. Zero jibes today. All energy was preserved for speed runs and at the and, I have to admit, I was disappointed with my numbers. But what a great workout. Pyramid Lake; always challenging, never a dull moment!!!

Denis was working on his sling shots tirelessly. Can't wait to see his numbersCool

The wind was strong enough but something wasn't right, size smaller sail might be better for today. Max. speed was even better than last time 40.17 but 2 sec. came out less than 40.

Congratulations on PB Denis!!!

Gust were just to violent and rolling chop didn't help either. You'll get 42 next time Wink
