014 - Gusty big wind day that started early and lasted.  First session a little underpowered especially inside but worked upwind then across IWC between SI#2 & SI#3.  Made several round trips in the East Bay and across the IWC in some big swells and gusts ending up at SI#3.  Didn't try the spoil flats and there was too much south for the PINS drop-off to be very good.  Everywhere was full planing and plenty of power with the downwind return in 2 tacks back making the upwind work worthwhile.  Second session BAF to SI#1, mostly fully powered everywhere but finally wore out.  The speed guys went to the north basin and reported it to be flat and OK with the low water level.
