Unusual NW direction allowed for sailing to the dam and back. Completed my first fresh water, bumpy-venue monkey duck. Attempted several backwind jibes only on the bumpy outside (my good side in this case), didn't make any. Tried beat tacks, but I keep forgetting to let go with the back hand and skip the backwinded part. First time trying booger tacks in non-light wind. Close, but no cigar. Tried some vulcans, with probably only one that was recognizable as such. The others were likely the "you look like you're just falling off the board" variety. If you didn't leave work early, you missed it.
