Nice turnout with 6 of us sailing. Picture perfect. Josh, John, Patrick, and Duane showed up for windsurfing and Greg was on his foil. We had a great time on the 5.8’s to 6.2’s until around 10:00 when the wind dropped off significantly. Only Greg and his foil kept going at that point. But after a little over an hour it came ripping back in and just kept getting stronger. It got a little more west but most reaches were pretty near the concrete level marker, as good as it gets with a front so close. Pretty up and down but no huge holes so I was able to use the little 86L race board for a ton of screaming reaches. And when it was up it was up, tailwalking on a regular basis. By 1:30 I was the only one left and, after an hour on the 4.7, I had all the body could handle and bagged it. As I am writing this at 6:30 the front appears to have just hit the west shore of GSL. Great day.

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.
