Work in the morning, Thanksgiving feasts with the kids at school mid-day, and finally out to the lake in the late afternoon. I saw Keith leaving on the drive down and I saw Laura packing up when I arrived. Not good signs. I missed it again.

I rigged anyway. "Any day sailing is a good day sailing". LWF in 10-15mph. It was beautiful. I won't deny my disappointment of another planing opportunity missed. Still, I made it out on the water. I love this sport despite how frustrating it can be. I am hoping the LWF is paying forward for the day the conditions are really good again. I cannot wait until I can try a vulcan attempt. I will be more patient.
