Langlois, OR, USA - Floras Lake
Sailworks Retro 5.5, Goya Bolt 95, MFC KP-R360, Wind roughly 15G25 both sessions.
Sailed from roughly 1:00PM to 2 and 5:00PM to 6. Downhauled the 5.5 to Roo's 'high wind' mark (about 4 inches in from the gear cog). Fully powered in the gusts. There were some lulls but maybe 80% of a run was in the gusts. Torqued my left thigh on the second jibe attempt (on east side of lake) as well as almost crushed my left foot when I biffed the jibe and the left foot didn't come out of the strap. Other than that little kerfufle with the board, sailing was enjoyable but a workout for me. RD, on the other hand, just kept going like the Energizer Bunny. I'm really looking forward to his posting.
