Too much East in the wind. I also was not excited about wearing a wetsuit again, but I was toasty in the 50 degrees air with warm water. I rigged up my Unit 5.5 since the 6.5 Slick SLS has a leak. I thought I should also try my HA front wing again for grins. The HA front wing felt faster (watch confirmed almost 2 knots faster), but at first, I was unable to jibe or sail switch well with it. After a while, I got the hang of it and made most my jibes and footswitches. Then the wind started to die. Fortunately I made it back, but not without effort since the lauch site was upwind had a big wind shadow.
