RemarksOdd day; I awoke to the sound of the wind howling at 5am. I had breakfast and took my time as I thought it would be there the whole day; I also needed it to swing more West to avoid the running swell the NW produces.
I got down to the waters edge at 7am and rigged the 9, hoping that I could handle it, when all of a sudden it died down to bearly 10 knots.
After a few hours of waiting around it started to pick up again (around 12pm), this time not as strong but decent enought to get some runs in with my 12.
I'm glad I waited, as I managed to improve on most stats except the peak and long distance speeds.
