Alissa's WindLog for Tuesday August 15, 2006

79th session in 2006
Sailed at West Dennis, MA
Wind from the SW (mph)
        Average: 28
Rated a 10 of 10

Board: HiFly freeride 88
Sail: 3.7 Naish Edge
Suit: shorty

76 I couldn't sleep I was so excited. The wind blew all night. I don't know why I don't get so excited in corpus but I do here. My smallest was a 4.7 but Freestyle lent me his 3.7 and Tedro lent me his 370 mast, so I got in a great session. It started raining and then became a downpour, tough to even see the beach from the outside, and despite the low tide it was really choppy. So that plus my big board made it tough to try new freestyle moves, but I still had a great time. I love windsurfing in heavy rain, especially on a 3.7. Wind today ranged from 26-32 while I was on the water but I entered 28 as the likely average of the overall session. Believe it or not both of the following photos were taken when it was blowing in the high 20s. They don't look windy to me now when I see them. yesterday's launch @ HYC: http://i87.photobucket.com/albums/k154/corgnilias/hyclaunch.jpg today's launch @ West Dennis: http://i87.photobucket.com/albums/k154/corgnilias/windywd.jpg
