048 - Another big wind day mostly BAF to SI#1 except for a few runs to the KRS early.  Powered about right at first, especially on the outside and across the IWC.  It didn't take long for the full blow to start going to overpowered most of the time.  Better transitions outside felt strange today, didn't find the drop-off groove inside.  Today was very close to yesterday but seemed more manageable.  Lots of folks cruising all afternoon including some pre-teens in no wetsuit learning and doing very well......sorta got humbled today with one crash but no damage.
