Yesterday I was incapable of deciding if I should go windsurfing or not. It was just so gusty. North Westerlies are always gusty but this one was especially so. One minute it would be gusting to 40... the next it would be 15. How do you rig for such a day? After waffling all afternoon, I gave up. I was sitting in my truck having just watched a squall blow through [sideways rain, and all] when I got a call from Pete. "I'm at Stehle. I'm rigging a 5.5." is all he had to say.
There was a bit more traffic than usual because it was now 5. But I was still rigged and on the water by 6. Joe Elvis showed as well. It was still a gusty session. But all north westerlies are.
