Tuesday, Lexington- Sun, Cold and NORTH WIND
Big Day at Lexington yesterday - awesome North steady 20-25K all day 4.5M to 5M solid with nice waves and sun during a very cold session on the water. Keith started the day up and sailing by noon and the session lasted until late with Brent, Craig and Millard. I caught the mid-day for a few hours and was pretty overpowered by the likes of my now thrubbing forearms from a 5M. Waves on the inside of the breakwall were great fun (riding and jumping) and the outside was scattered and messy but still a couple of clean 8+ footers in the near gale gusts. Classic day worthy of a the 150 mile $40+ roundtrip. Best day of 2008 some far by my count. Lets hope for more!
Gear: 85 JP FSW and 5M Search
Winds: N-NNE-NE 20-25K Steady from 5AM - 7PM on S. Lake Huron
