I was there as well. Also Wednesday and Thursday am's. 5.2 Wed, 4.6 Thurs
and Fri (I used a 4.0 for a brief period Friday. 140#) Excellent all three
days. The wind all three days seemed to back off at sunrise, then build back
up. COW is still a bit hard to adjust to the actual wind. IMHO if its over
15 and ebbing, make the drive.
