I sailed as long and hard as I could. The forecast was not great, I was just hoping that the afternoon breeze would kick in enough so I could hopefully plane. Thankfully it did. Looking at the wind graph, it was just above my threshold. Maybe it was the hypersaline water. I don't really care. I had great time, and was so glad I got down for the day.

I also got a few good slides on the big gear which was a first, and Randy witnessed one of them, so it is official. I am making some progress. I still have a long way to go on my vulcan quest, but I will take any encouragement I can get.
