57 Awesome time here as usual. Brought only Sam's compact move 115 due to low forecast and 9 mph wind reading when I left...and I wanted to practice light wind on big board. When I got there a storm & wind had come through. Sailing in itself was not fun on the 115 planing, but I learned. Pretty soon I traded sails with Sara to let her try a small & modern rig. She loved it & did well, and that made it well worth me struggling with a twitchy-rigged 6.3! Fun just cruising and trying to SB3 it. 2nd sesh was one of the most fun this year. Night sailing with glow sticks from Tamay. Just me Sara and Brett on the water. no full moon due to clouds. Awesome just relying on the feel of the wind. The best was body dragging into black water. Also fun heli tacking and pushing the clew out into blackness, or throwing the sail for a DJ based only on the angle of the board. and yes, I tried and tried and got my first UW360 IN THE STRAPS. I got a couple. I think the dark helped! we've GOT to night sail more often.
