Wind on my day off is always a special occasion. Made a two session day out of it. The earlier session was prompted by the trees outside my window blowing around like crazy, although that ended up being the less powered session. I sailed upwind of the island with a couple other lucky day-offers. Then after Brian got off work, we headed back to the lake for a nicely powered vulcanatorium session. I left the calm of the cove once since there were a few swimmers using the cove, but the upwind area was just a mess!  A true washing machine, so I quickly retreated and tried a few vulcan pops and mixed it up with ducks and attempted lay downs.
