Definitely our windiest day out in the year we've had our TI. We've been happy to get some 12-14 mph winds lately...but this was the most I'm comfortable with.
This is just a minute of video of the waves crashing over us....and me as ballast out at the edge of the trampoline.

As you'll see, this was minutes before we sheared the rudder pin. Luckily, my fiance is the most resourceful person I've ever met and we had another on board. We just ordered three more in case this happens again. It wasn't super fun having to pedal to the closest shoreline to fix it.
