A month long stretch without windsurfing! I drove down for the afternoon, knowing it could be borderline and I needed to be fresh in the OR early the next day. Once I arrived at BIB, I saw Celia and Steve leaving saying they were down for the weekend and caught the pre-squall wind and wished me luck for it to come back up. Don asks if I am sailing tomorrow, saying it looks good for the next two days, as if the wind has left for good. Olivier told me I just missed the wind and it was coming down.

F-it, I am sailing. LWF, I don't care. It has been a long month, and hot as heCK.

The upper teens can be very frustrating for me, watching the lighter folk plane, but thankfully I was making it work. I pulled off a DW360 in the straps in the lightest winds ever for me, a sign I have become more efficient at them. I wanted more vulcan attempts today, but I will have to wait until next time.
