Excellent after work session. Got that majical evening puff that seems to happen every so often at Travis. Tried a vulcan from port...no luck. I'm (finally) getting the hang of getting the sail back upright in the full speed push tacks. A couple of them felt downright sick...full speed...mast way low...tight turn...(usually this is where it ends)...mast back upright and sail away! Made maybe 50% of them. Made 0% monkey ducks. The 5.8 Triple XXX seems to have more pull than the 5.8 Ezzy. I don't think the Ezzy likes our masts very much. Only 2 other people out, both on Formula gear. Windy season is officially here, the majical 4 weeks right after daylight savings begins...and Windy Point still closes at 7:30!!!!! Before sunset!!!!! And you still want to be sailing!!!!! Arghhh!!! On the bright side, I get the sense that we're out of the 10 year no-wind slump in Austin that started when Stefan started dating Heather. PSB: Real Ale Full Moon Rye Pale Ale
