127- At dawn it looked a little iffy but it turned out to be a great day as cold front hit just before sunrise and lasted all day!  First session was mostly solo for quiet awhile before Steve arrived, crossing the Mudflats below the North Cabins,  nice swell both directions BAF between the KRS and IWC.  Second session upwind of the North Cabins BAF to KRS with returns in to the north end, Horseshoe spoil and the boat ramp.  Both sessions with 5.8. fully powered wall to wall.  The wind dropped for a break and it didn't take long to become obvious that the 5.3 would work.  Third session full on power as wind shifted to ENE making runs between the north end and boat ramp channel at the IWC.  Last session was still OK just a little more inconsistent but easily planeable.  Outstanding day that wasn"t really forecast, good enough to count as two days.
