I did not see Mike until I packed it up. B&L were sidelined with a flat tire repair.

It did seem windy when I got there. Bob suggested I rig a 5.3m2. I am glad I did not. I rigged up the 5.9m2. It was just below my planing threshold most of the time. I sailed with Clarence and Bob, mostly. I must admit, I have not sailed Oleander since the 80's. Not much has changed. I wanted to really pop off some of that famous CC chop, but the wind did not cooperate. I stayed out there for while hoping things would improve, but they only gradually got worse, thus, I called it a day.
