037 - Nice doing the sandbar with moderate power between Lookout Point and the north end.  First out was big board, second was smaller board and rig at max.  Glad to see several on the water that haven't been out for awhile.

036 - Short one out and back to the spoil island toward the bridge.  Manageable chop and lots of power, water shallow with lots of weeds. Next two hours were gusty with increased spread as it peaked.

035 - More than forecast out to SI#1 at first then half way between the spoils later, nothing but chop everywhere and then some.  First few runs were iffy but re-set DH/UP to medium and managed to get enough power.  Wind peaked a couple of hours after session ended.

Big and smooth. No, I mean REAL BIG and SMOOTH! Who doesn't like it big and smooth? What a ridiculous looking word, smooth. Don't look at it for too long though, else you'll get disoriented, like me.

034 - Late peak didn't happen and the low end was weak.  Managed to do OK first half staying near the sandbar and on the drop-off.  Then it got more up\down and made a last run SI#2.

033 - Late peak again, rigged the same and was consistenty powered.  On the drop-off between Lookout Point and the north end. At least the cloud cover didn't keep it from blowing.

032 - Note to self, if ignoring a good forecast be prepared to rig a second time and note #2, re-rig if forecast actually happens early and you don't have it right.  Started late as forecast but rigged just before it kicked in and didn't re-rig. OP'd most of the time, adjusted harness lines several times, added more out/downhaul a couple of times and never got it right.   Stayed on the drop-off, made jibes and went fast but it was too much rock and not enough roll.  The 5.3 and 93L would have worked much better.  Only a handful out.
