017 - More wind than expected for some sail work practice but not quiet enough for real sailing.  Did some sail chi and sail work with the board grounded.  Good way to help get the feel of things without being on the water so it makes for lots of practice with minimal water time.  Also went out with no fin to try and do a little more board work, got trashed twice on full plane with no fin, suddenly the tail became the nose then board, sail and body go into a full slide and crash in 3" of water.  Did go out with cut down fin to work on back wind sailing and SB360 then on land again to work more on linking several SB360 together which felt like a little progress.
