Big KP day was worth the drive and skipping work - I sailed a 3.7M NP Jet powered all day on a the 85ltr. JP FSW. I could have used a 77liter for most of the morning as the speeds going out through waves were hitting hyper-drive. I think for the morning session I had the largest hull on the water (2 guys on JP 68 liters). Temps were cold but the sun came out numerous times and the water was still near 60. Equipment wise I had to lengthen out my harness lines the furthest ever just to control the rig and have some working room when dealing with the gusts and the waves. Lots of great jumping runs but the wave riding was the real rush with steep faces and long sets. The winds were 30+ knots NNW most all day so you could still go straight out and the dead north direction showing at the buoys never materialized at the beach.
Finally! a great fall sailing day and a classic KP day at that.
