My first freshwater sailing and also 1st time in Austin. I am joining Mike, Julie, and Benjamin at Brian and Laura's. Wow!!! the best day I've had in recent memory. The best was the way in--it mimicked the direction and orientation of the ABK clinic so I worked on some of that stuff, namely JJs and shove-its. I definitely had my best ever of each (although still not landing the SIs). Need to work on keeping the weight on my heels! It's incredible trying a shove it off an actual ramp rather than flat water. Most people I know from visiting Corpus were here so it was fun to sail with friends on the water. Merry christmas...I doubt I'll get on the water again until afterward. Great weather too for a cold front--in the high 60s and dropping and I didn't get cold til the end when my fingers turned white but I still managed another short sesh after that. Water warm. Great for december!!
