 091 - Hoping for a little more than forecast but no go.  First tack out was to the North Spoil, then 5 more tacks in the North Basin to get up to the big dune.  Sailed between the dune and IWC spoils on plane with low/med power.  Didn't go further upwind with all the dark gray clouds.  Water is higher but it was hard to see, fin scratched a few times. Made it back in 2 tacks and it was all solo today.

 090 - Today had a tropical touch, no rain but it blew way more than expected as a low heads toward us.  Out to the North Spoil and back both ways right at the Horseshoe point.  First 6 runs were way over powered with 5.8, should have know better before rigging it.  Could have done 4.7 but went with the 5.2.  It was sorta heavy at first so went to maximum outhaul and it helped.  There was a lot of chop, a bit gusty and all solo after rigging down.

 089 - Short but nice late session with flat water out and back around the Horseshoe and North Spoils. Other than a few small holes it was fairly powered.  Bob did well with a 7.1 and was the only other out.

 088 - Rigged for the forecast, but it turned out to be disappointing and a little underpowered.  Rigged at the north end and sailed in the North Basin between the Horseshoe Spoil and the first point at the trees.  On third run the boom inhaul line broke, got  it fixed on the spot because the line was extra long.  Power was only 50/50 but the water was much smoother than the normal area.  Took a fairly long break in between sessions.  Had a high speed tire blowout on the road 1/2 way home, had to rearrange lots of gear to get to the spare.

 Most days on the water are good days but I sprained my ankle or something after only about 20 minutes and had to stop. I'm hoping it will turn out to be minor. I was trying a pirouette jibe and slipped off where it was shallow due to the low tide.

board: '14 JP 93 FWP         sail: 5.0 EZZY ELITE

 087 - Another hot and windy one as called for.  Tried the Elite again and it felt very nice.  Out bewteen the spoils and back with fairly full power and just small lulls.  Still a bit choppy outside but able to do the sandbar on the returns. The few that went north did well and just a few stayed.

board: '14 JP 93 FWP         sail: 4.7 EZZY ELITE

 086 -  About as forecast but the east shift didn't happen and it dropped early.  Out and back to SI#1 in meduim chop and it was sorta gusty.  At first it was fairly full power, then it got shifty and then stinky as it dropped.  Tried the Elite (on Chinook mast) again and it was like the wind, good at first but disappointing low end power.  Those who went north early had much smoother conditions.  Next couple look good but might be it until after the week-end.

board: '14 JP 93 FWP         sail: 5.0 EZZY ELITE

 085 - It stayed a bit choppy and was powered just about everywhere out and back to SI#1.  Went to the north end several times but not always powered. Would of normally rigged 4.7 but tried the 5.0 Elite with my boom and an Ezzy mast. It felt great over and/or under powered.  Only 3 or 4 on the water today and plenty more on the way.

board: '14 JP 93 FWP         sail: 4.7 EZZY TIGER

 084 - Lots of chop for a SE wind so ........................rigged at the north end and sailed the North Basin with a few other folks.  Mostly full power BAf between the Horseshoe spoil and the point after the trees.  Very smooth around the point and just slight chop otherwise.   It seemed to drop a bit late but was still very sailable.
