100 - Started blowing early, dropped off and came back bigger.  First session on 5.2 was a too optimistic, out to SI#2 and back to the north end with fair power outside but some big holes inside.  Rigged 5.8 at the last minute for second session which was the Worldwinds Winduro with about 13 sailors.  Would have been fine with the 5.2 because the wind really picked up and never let up for the rest of the day.  One of the first to make the first mark, then fell into a good postition in the middle of the two packs.  Felt mostly overpowered, missed two jibes and finished early with 10 round trips.  Frank and Maurie tied with 16 round trips and were rewarded by getting to be first in the chow line.  Hot and windy with big crowd to celebrate Worldwinds 10th Annual 4th of July BBQ.
