Mosquitoes!! What the heck? I could not get out on the water fast enough to escape them. The wind eventually filled in big time. I had to rig down to my new to me 2015 5.2m S-1 Pro from the 2017 5.9 Freek I sailed this morning. The S-1 Pro can handle gusts like a champ! Seriously, I may not need a smaller sail except when I visit The Gorge. It was very interesting having sailed the 2016 5.3m2 Blade in similar conditions this past June. The Blade is very nice, but I will take the S-1 Pro anytime. I'm not sure about the low end, and I am curious how a 5.6 feels. Awesome day!
