010 - Nothing really forecast but it teased enough that when the sun came out had to give it a go.  Small gap between gusts and lulls made for mostly planing but hardly ever fully powered.  BAF to the North Cabins working upwind and got some nice flatwater inbound runs between Horseshoe and the North Point.    More than once cruised through ducks that were floatng and took off.  Felt bad that one seemed to stay on the water for several more encounters, each time the duck would try to take off but end up diving underwater to barely escape.  Ended up sailing the entire session with just Wilf out.
