A warm and windy Sunday in October: hitting the jackpot! The Wolf, Scott, Massimo, and Filipp from Maryland, along with Jimi Jam and a group of kiters were riding the southern blow. I rigged a 5.4 (aping Scott’s 5.3) and spent the day lit. Had to come in several times to tune the rig for less power. Carrying my gear back up onto the beach as the Wolf watched, I said I needed to either tighten all my lines or rig a 4.7. “Down and out” the Wolf proclaimed.
Where has that windsurfing phrase been hiding all my life?
Added some downhaul, added some outhaul, and took off like a shot. A great day down and out in SJ!
(Scott and I inbound on 5 meter sails. We could have been on 4.7's.)
