Headed down with Kai for a few days since I haven't started teaching yet. Got there a bit late, but was nicely powered on the 5.0. Tried everything, completed zero. I felt tired and was not fully on my game. It also was a bit lonely with only a handful of people on the water who were staying further out. Then Don came out and started doing DW360's, which I watched and tried to immitate. That was fun and he passed on some good advice about being patient and pushing on the clue to keep from getting pummeled backwards.
