145 - Tropical cold front MEG hit at sunrise with plenty of clouds, big wind and cold air.  Planned to wait for the wind to stabilize although the air and water were supposed to steadily drop.  It was a full planing session and overpowered in some of the larger gusts on tack out and back to the Mudflats.  Managed to stay reasonably warm, at least it was the gloves that wore the arms out rather than the cold.  Only managed one session which was mostly solo and with Keith (WI).  The 3 others who sailed earlier gave it up about the time I got started.
