Ponquogue Wave Sailing - March 2008

The Wolf and I scored a side-on wave sailing session at Ponquogue today ahead of this weekend's big coastal storm. The East wind built into the 20's, and by the end of it we were both launching off big ramps and riding shoulder-high waves on the way in. Scott swung by and caught some it on camera, but for now, I've got some on-the-water video I managed to take with the hand held Olympus 790sw:

Looks like a great day...I can't believe I missed it!

As you've noted Andy to say, "Any day sailing is a great day sailing", even if air & water temps are around 40 with wind chill hitting the 20's! Fortunately there are warmer and longer days ahead :)

Thanks Tom! No mount - I just held the camera in my back hand, and sailed as best I could with the front hand and harness. Unfortunately, the camera sprung a leak the next day at Mattituck, so for now it's land-based video only while I hunt down a replacement.
