I was nervous about solo righting...till I pitchpoled and sent me and my GF flying. I had her wait in the water so I could try to solo right. It came right up. I'm 220lbs. Wind was blowing pretty good so not sure about light wind...but you have to work a lot harder to flip em in light wind! I have a righting bucket as a just in case.
This is my experience... I am pretty tall at 6'5" and broad shoulders... right now about 212lbs... In 8-10mph of wind I can pop it up... Less than that I am in trouble..
Those 5 gusting to 15 days get me sometimes.. My first of the year was last Saturday.. A big gust knocked me over as I was playing the game of trying to fine the balance point.. (the goal being to balance the boat flying a hull with the boat nearly stopped.. )
I had to wait several minutes for a big enough puff to help lift the boat.
Normally I carry one of those short wooden paddles.. I have the paddle side sanded down to fit in the lip of the hull perfectly... A nice hole drilled in the handle, and a couple short pieces of line.
I just tie the line to the tramp holding the paddle up... and walk out the short paddle with the righting line in hand... It works GREAT!
