I started to freak out when I pulled up and the wind was only @17 and I saw a lot of slogging on the water. So, I rigged big and hoped for the best. Lots of gusts and holes, very cloudy, and the water felt a little chillier than I expected. Thankfully, the sun broke through and the wind filled in. I was a bit overpowered in the gusts, but cruised through the lulls. I sailed for four hours without a break, except for stopping by to say hello to Andy. He let me try a foil board for the first time. It was pretty easy, but I was on a beginner kit. Slingshot Wizard 150 with the short mast and a SUP front wing.
