Gusts hit 38 kts at Pt Blunt, just west of the top of the course. It's still in the mid 20s ashore in the east bay and wicked chilly. I just loaned my best friend my dry suit.

We run both on a J length pole, no hit to our rating at all.   We kept the A2.5 1 SQFT smaller than our class kite.   Works well, a 5 sting gybe is a PITA for W/L stuff its a lot to get re-set up for twice around courses.

Same here, though I sized my assyms for the upper wind ranges where their inherent stability helped keep the oscillations under control. J length pole, kite less than or equal to my S2, NO penalty.
