Woo, Rain Monday but great sun Wednesday for Harsens

Last 2 days of this great streak of wind this week. Wind 5 out of 6 days is something rare around here.

Monday: kiting in the rain and SSW 15-20+. Misery of rain and dark skies with the glory of only about 6 kiters out. 2 hours of wet fun and teaser for....

Wednesday! 25-35 West at Harsens. Sunny and 60 degrees with about 30+ sailors and kiters out. Started 4.2 overpowered blasting then after about 30 minutes down to the 3.7 for an hour. Great tiny curling waves made for few jumps but holes and gusts made it so had to go back to the 4.2. Got in 2 hours before it dropped to 20's by 2pm. Time to kite. 9m Rebel fix was in and kite was fast in the big winds. Easy upwind made for great downwinders working on the jibes and topside. Day flew by like Keith on his 12m handling 30++ peak winds like a pro. Memorable day to round out week.
