The bane of the inland lake sailor is gusty wind. Stop and go. Sometimes hammer gusts. You're just grateful when they come at you from the same direction (as in this video). My Oak Hollow and Belews sailing friends will recognize this type sailing - some times it goes on for hours. It can be frustrating, but you take what you can get. The guys who don't pay attention on these type days pay a price.
