Re: Lake sailors: how do you like your wind?

i sail a small-ish lake in western hills of North Carolina. the winds are very shifty, so, the winds like this past wkend as stated by another near by, the winds were 20 with 30knt gust. and as usual as i get out there with my lil o'day daysailer2 the winds provide five to ten minutes of gust then as usual die. then maybe an hour later pickup. my normal routine is tack in gusty winds to one side of lake thinking ill have a speedy run back..and as always the case, by the time i reach the end the wind has died and must struggle getting back. jibing, waiting, jibing a little more, etc.
