reference to steady state RIDING), do it low over the surface, so you have a
better chance of relaunching (as well as a better chance to PREVENT luffing
on land, since you can more quickly retension the lines by stepping back).

between 2 gusting to 5 knots, than between 10 gusting to 20.

archives right now, but I was on my 13.5 on the following dates: 11/22/00,
11/24, 12/19, 12/27, & 01/01/01
