Geee,that was windy

Petone Beach, Petone
Windsurfing: Bump n Jump
11 pm - 1 pm Tuesday. June 8. 2010
my rating 4 star rating
Wind Direction: S Wind Strength: maxed   using 4.1 - 4.5m sail. Swell Direction: S Swell Size: waist Tide: High - Falling.

Went to Petone at 9am to check it out,clocked the windspeed at 28 knot highest gust 33. Went back home and grabbed my gear when I returned the wind had dropped to around 20knots,it was up again to around 30 when I had finished rigging. Carol rocked up just as I headed out,and he made it quite clear that he would wait to see how I went before making his decision,which was fair enough because it was pretty cold,anyway he joined me after about 10min,which was good to see. I had some good runs to start with,but about halfway through the session I became maxed out and decided to change down to a 4.5,by the time I got back on the water the wind had increased even more. Decided after 2 hours that it was to much like hard work so I went in. Clocked gusts at 36knot just before I left. I think it will take we about a week to warm up.

3 thumbs up!

You are a legend. Two hours in this cold, it deserves a BIG thumb up.

Gee Carol,you would not believe how windy it got after you left. I had a hell of a battle getting my gear back to the rigging area,and some of those waves got pretty big. Today was the windiest I have sailed,even beats the hell session I had with Condor a few months back.
