Another perfect Gorge day. I'm getting comfortable with the gear and the conditions, and am trying stuff. Attempted a vulcan on port tack (which is my bad side) in front of Mark and Laura sitting on the shore. This provided them with much entertainment. Let's just say the reviews were not as favorable as I had hoped. Tried a couple of push tacks, failed miserably. Tried a few shove-its, and the reviews would probably not be so favorable for these either if anybody had seen them. Mike from Houston (by way of the UK) came up to me and said he recognized us from Corpus. It never fails that we run into someone from Texas here. Tomorrow is supposed to be 25-30+. Post sailing beer: HW's Blue Boar Pale Ale (this is a very bad, unsatisfying beer...it tastes like Heineken...it made me buy some Rip Curl on the way home.)...and Full Sail Rip Curl.
