63rd session in 2008
Sailed at Elk Lake, MI
Wind from the W (mph)

Rated a 7 of 10

Board: Exocet Cruiser LARGE
Sail: '06 Ezzy Wave 5.2

"invented" a new move. The name is either the Milquetoast or the Ducky Push, but i haven't a clew. You start it as a push tack but you duck the rig and throw it to complete it as the board turns upwind. A says maybe it's in the Tricktionary, but i don't see it.

Worked obsessively on my bad sides: starboard push tacks and port duck tacks. By the end of the session I couldn't tell the difference between the good side and the evil, but I think i've experienced that before on a big board and still havn't transferred the good/evil indifference to the 100L board. Maybe this'll finally get the brain wiring properly fused?

PSB: Bell's Porter

In yet other beer related news...early reports and rumors say that the Port A Brewing Company is now open and gets a thumbs up. Here's hoping they get a different logo and forget the goofy nautical characters though. Hot on it's heels, and a little closer to "home", is a rumored PIBC at the former La Paletera location on the island. Navin R Johnson best summarized what this all means when he said: "things are going to start happening to me now".
