Wild day out on Sandy Point, CT. We were chasing the wind and hoping to dial it in as it went up and down dramatically. Low tide and choppy waters made the speed runs challenging. I got one good gust and saw 38 knots for the first time. I thought that the next run would be 40..., but the wind dropped suddenly. My top 5 runs ranged from 31 knts to 37 knts. Tough sledding... C'est la vie, next time. Beautiful day on the water with Peter, Nina and Bart.

Sandy Point, CT. Fun to be out with the team, but my timing today was ridiculous. Rigged to 32 mph when it seemed the wind was going down, and was then blown off the water when it picked up to 40s gusting 50 as soon as I went out. Being on the speed board in up & down wind, and having to go through a mile of chop to get to the sand bar, was a bad idea. Tried to switch to a larger board when the wind dropped, only to have it pick back up to 40 just as I sailed back to the sandbar. Got about 20 minutes in 5 hours where the gear was right for the conditions, but had spent most of my energy by then. Well, at least going over to Egg Island will feel easy next time, and the little swim through the shipping channel if the wind drops will be shorter than today's swim session.
