4/16/11 Buckroe

Forecast was for SE 25/Big rain in the afternoon. The air temp was high 60's-low 70's. Me, Raav, Kung Fu, Knight, Derek, Carl. Launched from playground at Buckroe, north of pier. First went out on Acid w/ 5.3. Got blown off the water so switched to 74/4.4. This was the wrong thing to do. I did need a smaller sail, but the wind was unbelievably gusty. It would blow 35 for 10 minutes, then 20. Towards the end of the day I put the 4.4 on the acid and had a decent end of session-session. When the wind was up, we had some decent wave riding and some decent port jumps. Raav and Carl getting nice jumps on starboard. I really only had an OK session. Need to get back on the water and get my timing back.
