Friday evening was some great sailing as well. My first delta sess
of the year. I was using the 4.2/8'6" Enduro (155#) and loving
life. Slightly OPd in the gusts and planing nicely most of the rest
of the time. I started at the jungle, and was heading upwind to
Decker Island---but got too distracted by the ramps near Windy
Cove. Some of the runs would have 3-4 steep perfectly angled
ramps. The best ramps were a little downwind and a little upwind of
the Windy Cove launch. wrote:
