021 - More of a big tease than big wind, difficult sailing as it seemed more like 10-20 mph than actual readings.  Most were tacking to SI#1, there was good wind around it but the inside had big holes and some teaser runs.  Almost everyone had trouble at some time or another, especially those rigged for the forecast.  Worked upwind and south to SI#2 and BAF to shore a few times, the across IWC upwind of SI#2 and back to shore.  The wind down south and outside was more consistent but not much stronger.  The last shorter session had plenty of wind BAF from SI#2 and was a little stronger inside at the launch.  Too much of day felt either under or over powered, choppy, shifty, holes and gusty but at least was warm.  Sails ranged from 4.7 -7.8 with a dozen or so sailing.
