I think that is the biggest day I've ever sailed Utah Lake. It was absolutely huge. I was on a 78L board on a 4.1 and then a 3.6 and it was waaaaay too much. Brian and I sailed from 2:30 to 6:30.
Brad and Rod took a couple rides and were blown off the water. They needed much smaller boards.
Provo boat harbor was reading 35 gusting to 46. Saratoga was reading higher than that. Whatever it was, it was huge and amazing. Big air, survival in the brown chocolaty swells.
Both Brian and I feel good to have survived with minimal damage. We did put a fin through the 3.6 sail, but it should be able to get repaired. That beach is nasty. After all the improvements, morons still are discarding trash, beer bottles, etc. There was a lot of broken glass so be careful if launching from Lindon. Pelican point is definitely a better launch and rig.
Brian rescued a baby deer from the Geneva ponds. A kiter was going to take it to the animal shelter. Not sure if the little guy will survive or not.
It looks like a ski boat didn't watch the wind report and capsized. The Park rangers went out and looked they were searching around. Hopefully no one died.
On a positive note, I took some Go Pro video, so I'll see if it is any good. If so, I'll post it up!
Phew! What a day!!!!!!
