Thanks for the lift back. Greg and I chased you on the downwinder for the ride back. We launched again when we got back and the body was still on the beach about a 4 par upwind from where we rigged. Talk about an ominous backdrop: choppers circling, coast guard boats running grids, corpse on the shore, shit...

Well I took some pics. I just fixed this camera from the last time it got stuck a couple of weeks ago.
the average was wind was 23 to 25kts the gusts were 27 to 30kts

some of us did not anticipate these higher winds. I wish I had my 10 meter it would have been better for me.

I will post pics

that does sound creepy about the body.
