No video. I sailed hard, but did nothing. The few vulcan attempts I had were hooked-in crashes. Even Laura asked if I was still trying to do vulcans. Man, do I suck. I had many a plan to stay inboard when pulling the trigger today, and I ended up aborting most attempts. I tried to get some air today. Ground control to Major Tom-- check ignition, roger, no such luck.

The WP island kept everyone contained today. It was a good turnout. I had a few near misses with a kite and another windsurfer. I lucked out. I was much happier on the outside, but had a near miss with a PWC too. Once I ended up downwind, and even the scuba guys were screaming at me. Not my day.

I still say that south winds are still not great, but today, late in the afternoon, it was OK. No wetsuit required today. It was plenty warm. At least that.
