The rest of October [after Oct 1] was a total bust. There were two
somewhat windy days and I was busy both times.
=========== Thu 11 Nov 93
6 weeks without sailing! :-(
I arrived at Coyote at 1:45 to see Kirk heading out (apparently
for the 2nd or 3rd time already that day). He seemed to do well on
his 5.6 once he got past the swim area so I rigged 5.2/8'5 (Tiga 257).
This worked pretty well for the first half hour and then the wind
came up a lot and I was way overpowered. I came in at 3:00 and
rigged my 4.2. By the time I went out again, the wind had backed
off a bit, but it continued to be up and down. 4.2 was about
right - I slogged some, but had about as many stretches where I
was wayyy powered. On some of those, I was just outside the flight
path and the water got flatter than it was inside and the ride
was like being on a rocket sled! The Tiga is really nice
for riding well though the chop on days like this. Lots of fun.
After six weeks off the water, my arms got tired almost immediately. I
had to pay attention to adjusting rig and harness lines just right to
make it easy on them. On a couple of jumps, my back foot came out
of the footstrap at the top of the jump. Ooops...

Experiment agreed very well with the NWS data.
Looks like sailing again today!
