I think the word EPIC is over used but today there was no other word for it. 13M at 8 a.m. swithcing to 9M by early afternoon. 15 mph in the morning and gusts to 35 by 5 p.m. (gusts to 43 after 5 p.m. but we're out of the water and quivering on shore by then). 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. holy crap, longest session ever for me and Scotty my pacemaker held up just fine...PUNK!
