061 NOTHING FROM TROPICAL STORM ERIN UNTIL IT BECAME A LOW IN NORTH TEXAS SENDING SOME WIND TODAY. RIGGED A LITTLE TOO SMALL BUT IT WORKED REASONABLY WELL ON TACKS TO SI#1 & #2 AND LAUNCH. FAIRLY CONSISTENT PLANING, ONLY MODERATE POWER BUT GOOD ENOUTH FOR TRANSITIONS AND A FEW PEAKS BETWEEN LAUNCH AND NORTH END. SPENT ABOUT 1/3 OF TIME WITH TRINA IN EAST BAY BETWEEN SI#2 & #3, NOT MUCH WINDIER AND TOO MANY WEEDIES IN THE IWC BUT FUN CHOP AND HOPS. GOOD WEEKEND CROWD BEFORE HURRICANE DEAN HEADS TO MEXICO (HOPEFULLY) IN DAY OR SO. MOVING AVERAGE SPEED 17.3 MPH GPS PEAK 32.2 MPH QUESTIONABLE.
