Third day of LWF. Ugh! I am sore, tired and my feet were abraded from my non-skid (note to self..wear booties for LWF in the future). I also found a 1cm crack in my deck near my front footpad. Good excuse to hang out on the beach and make sure the board is dry, before a simple patch. I rigged up my 6.2m2 and cornered Derek to make sure I was using the right mast in my Severnes. All is good.

Brendon took some time to give me some new advice on my vulcan attempts. I am also going to try his harness line twist idea and see if it might help me not accidently get hooked in.

Later  Brian and Laura came down to sail and Andy invited us to listen to his loop lecture. It was really good for me to hear.

Finally, a little more LWF. It was fun to sail with B&L again, but I had lost my passion for LWF. I was tired and getting lazy. The board later popped me a good one in the back of my right thigh. Nice.

Forecast, just looked like more of the same, only with clouds and rain. I don't have it in me for any more LWF right now. Last planing wind for me was over a month ago. Hopefully, I will get some soon.
