Rigged too small. Got to hatch and Asma and Sofie were on 3.4 & 4.2 so I rigged 3.8 and it was too small. Grrr. Guess I need to rig the same as Sofie.

I was a bit bummed to be underpowered, then the wind KICKED IN! Spray on the wave tops. This was at 4 pm. Scott and I decided to stick around and sail some more, but the people were filing into the parking lot like crazy, so we waited a bit, hoping to go out when it was less busy. We finally rigged and i was crazy overpowered on 3.0. I went upwind 'cause it was absolutely frightening with all the wingers off the point. The water was rough upwind so I decided to go back downwind and i couldn't get downwind, it was so strong!!!  I had to go to the Oregon side to lose some ground to go downwind. Holy Cow!  Not the best day for me. Scott had a friggin' blast. It was crazy busy and windy until dark. Wow.
