You know those brown puffy coats that are inexplicably popular now especially in NYC but were also popular in the 70's? Well, I rescued one from the water today. It tumbleweeded across the sandbar...L's dad tried to chase it down...we all watched it float away...we watched the owners of the coat watch it floating away...we watched Mark sailing downwind of it in the Vtorium...then I thought i'd go sail out and get it, so i did. On the way back, I seriously for a brief moment considered trying a BL with a sopping brown puffy coat draped over my harness hook, but common sense and reason prevailed.

Difficult to get dialed into a groove today due to the varying conditions. Occasional white smoke where you just had to fall in and wait it out. Not sure that even the 3.3 would've been appropriate for those gusts.

 Mark took some pretty unique photos below. The first one is L with her uniquely radical jump jibes. The next one is a unique perspective on a vulcan landing. The last one is my kit having a good time without me. Not sure exactly what I was attempting there.
