Lots of us waiting for wind and getting a few rides; John, Sarah, Patrick, Josh, Mike E, Mike A. At around 11 gave up on big wind and went out on 8.5. Started off schlogging 2/3 across lake, planning up in the corner and flying back across the lake before schlogging east again. But it filled in for a sweet hour of full speed planing the width of the lake. After the lunch lull it came in with ripping rides on the 7.0 in 25 mph gusts with an occasional schlog across the lake in the lulls. Not the day I expected but we have the motor home here camping so I was able to stay at it until 4:30 getting lots of sailing. Finally got hit by a 30mph downburst and bagged it.

Sailing both the Gorge and Utah on my 8'2" HiTech and my 3 Starboards; Sonic 85L, S-Type 115L, and Carve 135L. Small quiver is Northwave, larger sails are Ezzy and Sailworks. Often in my white Odyssey but also in my wife's motor home.

DC wind was as chaotic as it ever gets; nobody (not even me) was dumb enough to try it:
