122-  Wind seemed to start early and had an interesting first session, clouds moved in during lunch break and sorta zapped the wind so gave it up after lame attempt at second session.  First tack was a round trip to SI#3 then back upwind of SI#3 and to shoreline, It was a little better outside so cruised up IWC along SI#3 to marker #154 in shallow but very nice flat water.  Back upwind of SI#3 to PINS shoreline to run the drop-off, nice but still small holes so went back upwind of SI #3 to shoreline again and finally got going south along the drop-off to Boom Point.  A few round trips BAF in the shoreline flats honoring the fishermen on Boom Point politely yelling to stay further away.  Once they left made two round trips from Boom Point, through the No Boat cut at the North end across the boat ramp channel and up to the first point in the North Basin.  A few more round trips along the drop-off going way south as wind became more easterly.  Entire first session was solo except between Lookout Point and the north end.  The Second session was marginal, began by slogging out to check two downed rigs, one occupied and the other was an abandoned WW board.  Finally made it in to the launch again then headed south with Larry and Mark but ended up slogging all the way back and decided to wrap it up.  Still have a sore lower back after a week or so of no sailing.
