This was as nice of a day at Windy Point as I have seen. It was cool, warm water, and terrific wind. Lots of people playing hooky. I got to try my new gear. Lots of adjustments, and things that I need to work on, but I was very impressed with the range of my Ezzy 7.2. My Exocet Cross 117 was terrific. I may need a bigger pointer fin in lighter breezes to go better upwind. The Freeweed was very nice when powered up. I was happy to have so much time on the new board today. I was overpowered on the 7.2m2 quickly and finally rigged down to a 6.0m2 Retro and it was much better. I wish we could have more of these days...
