L Bell McFancyPants's WindLog for Sunday January 04, 2009

4th session in 2009
Sailed at Windy Point, TX
Wind from the N (mph)
        Average: 17
        Gusts: 20
Rated a 5 of 10

Board: 08 JP Freestyle 99L
Sail: my NeilPryde Expression 5.7
Fin: Yes
Suit: Full with hood

Air temp: 40 - 44

3 very short sessions (10-15 mins each)

1. Full finger bicycle gloves - Yikes, worse than bare handed.

2. Bare handed - Just plain cold, but at least I could blow hot air on them while going straight. I knew the one handed sailing practice would come in handy some day.

3. Keith's thumb hole, other fingers together gloves - Yah!  My hands stayed warm. The only problem was I had a hard time handling the boom during transitions. They were really big on me, so possibly the right size would make the difference.
