045 ALMOST A BUST TODAY HIT ABOUT PEAK OF THE DAY BUT NEVER CAME CLOSE TO FORECAST. FIRST TO SI#2 SLOW PLANING IN THE GUSTS AND BIG LULLS. A LITTLE MORE OUTSIDE BUT VERY INCONSISTENT. SECOND OUT LOOPED ISLAND #2 A COUPLE OF TIMES CROSSING BETWEEN THE ISLANDS AND OUT TO THE PILES. ALBE TO SAIL FURTHER OFF THE CHANNEL AND CLOSER TO THE PILES AND HAD ONE NICE RUN TO THE KRS. THE IWC HAD NICE SWLLS FOR BOTH DIRECTIONS WITH STEADIER BUT NOT STRONGER WIND, AT LEAST ABLE TO KEEP PLANING WITHOUT THE LULLS. HOPEFUL FORECAST FOR TOMORROW.
