Got the direction wrong seems it will be WNW. Could perhaps work at th road or purgatory Cove. I tried to rig my 6.5 but my boom isn't long enough. I guess I'll have to just make do with my5.8 until I find a boom. I may get new sail and boom.

I'm thinking Purgatory with the WNW. It looks like 6.9 wind. You might be able to do some gust chasing with a 5.8. I'll be out there.

I was thinking purgatory cove too. Should be out there around 1pm

If I had it to do over again I would have rigged the 5.8. The first warning was the purple dashed line coming off the low(see map above). When those go through it's a boost. Second warning was the swell size coming in the cove when I pulled up. Third warning was having to pull over and give the 6.9 one click of the boom of more outhaul.(might as well just rig a 5.8 ) B) Fourth warning was I'm sailing the same size sail as Rich. :woohoo: Fifth warning was Chris is not schlogging at all on his 5.8. So it turned into an exercise of how much wind I can sail the Ezzy tiger 6.9 in. With the extra outhaul it handled very well. Chris's full Ezzy SE 5.8 and a flat Ezzy triger 6.9 looked like the same thing. It was also fun the race Rich on his 7.0. When Rich drops the hammer I can't keep up with him. :silly: It was a fun day being lit on the 6.9. I finally had to come in - overpowered. We all took a break. I went out again for another sesh and got off the water around 5:30.

More wind at the lake and STEADIER then what the meters show. Bloomington was the closest to what it was.

Great way to end a work week! Nice long runs and plenty of power. Just need to finish a few jibes one of these days!
