August 31 Coyote Point Site Report

Great fun on 5.6m sail during ebb tide

So far, I've been very happy with my new Garmin 920XT and the heart rate monitor straps that store the data until after windsurfing then upload it to the watch.  After you finish sailing and hit "save" it uploads the data from the HR strap then uses bluetooth to send the info to my smartphone that uploads it to Garmin, effortlessly.  It was a lot more work with the 310XT.

Oh, and the top speeds are much more reliable.

Great fun on 5.6m sail during ebb tide. Top sustained speed reached at 24.9 MPH also

Coyote Pt Site Report 5/27/15

Coyote Point Site Report for Wednesday May 27, 2015

Team Real Wind . Really fun, challenging hour on 6.6 sailworks Hucker for me and 7.3 Nash for Carl. Some great swells on port and speed runs on starboard

My Garmin 310XT GPS says I hit 38.5. I don't think I hit 38.5 MPH though I didn't crash so I'm not sure why it would read so high... but, given the conditions, I was probably hitting near record speed on a few runs so maybe the conditions might have been just right when running downwind with the chop and gusts hitting near 30 with a 6.6 Sailworks Hucker sail where I could have easily been on my 5.6 Hucker.
