108 - Slow start for October, wind was forecast to below for the past couple of days but didn't happen.  Ended up doing more LWF practice all at BIB.  On 10/2 it was 3 hours with ENE at 11-19 mph, then 10/4 for 3 hours with ESE at 12-18 mph and finally on 10/6 for 2 hours with SE 11-18 mph.  Overall felt like more progress, had fun doing multiple board 360s, tail first jibes and a few SB 720s.  Still need to improve consistency getting in to and sailing backwind on port tacks and of course everything else.  Hoping for some real wind tomorrow and forecast for 10/8 Canal Crawl looks good but maybe some rain.
