Mike E, Josh, John, Patrick and Sarah joined in for some even wilder winds. Started a little slow then went straight to 5.2 winds and a lot more at times. Definitely a wild morning. Gusted to 40 on my last trip before lunch which was a handful for a 5.2. I was by myself for the afternoon session and just as well as it was a real rodeo to use Sarah’s term. I rigged the 4.2 and still had to go down to the 76L glass board to make a go of it. Wish I had rigged the 3.7 but I was also sinking tail 1st at times for lack of wind keeping me from rigging down. The body finally gave out at 2:00 and I called it.
