9/9, Grants, 7.0/112L, Clouds in the Hole

Mike M and I were hoping at least for a replay of yesterday and got much more. Averaged 20g24 for more than 1.5 hours which was the top end for my 7.0. Was able to give my new 112L a good try out with the right fin this time (36cm vs. stock 40cm). Had a blast making screaming reaches with enough wind to jibe without coming off a plane. The extra wind seemed to be coming from the dark clouds perched over the Mormon bar (clouds in the hole as Bart would say). Quit when the clouds moved past lake. Great morning. A ton of people in the campground but hardly anyone on the shore. The 2 kayaks stayed out of our path.

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.
