Alissa's WindLog for Friday November 08, 2019

32nd session in 2019
Sailed at Port Aransas, TX
Wind from the NNW (mph)
        Average: 21
Rated a 10 of 10

Board: Angulo Triumph 81
Sail: 5.2 S2 Dragon '18
Suit: 4/3 steamer

The stats weren't looking great, but I gambled on dawn patrol, and conditions were excellent. Down the line all the way from the jetty to the pier. I have not had that long a ride since last year! I sailed til my arms gave out. Woohoo. Great morale boost after all these NW disappointments.

My wetsuit is swiss cheese. I thought I'd patched it well, but apparently not. It wasn't THAT cold out (50 degrees), but I got super chilled. Like white extremities and still shivering an hour after the drive back. I guess I might have to bite the bullet and get a new suit. The Monday front is looking actually cold. I have gotten stung by jellyfish every single time in the Gulf this Oct/Nov. What is going on?! I was remarking earlier in the year how I'd never seen so few. Like zero in the bay all spring or summer. Maybe they became gelatinous winter Texans?
