107 - Three more afternoons of LWF practice at BIB in the last half of September.  On 9/21 it was East 13-20 mph from 3-6 pm, again 9/22 from 4-6 pm with East 12-19 mph and on 9/30 from 3-6 pm with NE 10-20 mph all with 4.7 WP3.  Some progress on tacking into and sailing backwind, both on starboard side are fairly consistent but port tacks and sailing need more work.  Started trying single move SB360 without the backwind step and a little more with a jibe exit, moving to backwind after jib exit is getting better.  Not able to get the sail only 360 except by starting clew first, helicopter tacks are better.   Definitely not ready for a smaller board as consistency drops as the wind increases.
