We didn't bring the dog this time, so we were able to park on the point making it seem like a tropical vacation. Every 5 years or so the water level gets so low that islands and sandy points emerge from the depths. It was quite nice. The wind was typical Lake Travis wind providing lots of opportunity for both planing and non planing "tricks". I am getting duck jibes on both sides now (not pretty, but completed). I am trying to play around with pivot jibes by jumping to switch stance and then carving the pivot to sail out clue first.
