Alissa's WindLog for Friday January 09, 2009

1st session in 2009
Sailed at Laguna Shores, TX
Wind from the ESE (mph)
        Average: 22
Rated a 8 of 10

Board: mistral syncro fish '06 77
Sail: 4.7 Worldsail surge
Suit: 4/3 steamer

The wind was only up in the laguna, not really anywhere else. I'd lost my wallet and had no cash, so I didnt go to grassy although I would have liked the company. I parked at Pam and Chester's, which turned out to be fun anyway because they came out to say hi, and I could change in their house. Also I was able to tack upwind and chat with some of the others, and use the shower at the end of my session (sailing back very carefully so as not to get wet again!). I worked on some fundamentals and overall it was a great day--would have been warm enough for my shortie had I brought it, and perfect power for the sail i chose. This launch does make me nervous for aerials, though, because I end up hitting the bottom fairly hard at times and who knows what's down there....so mostly i stuck with just planing tricks.
