board: '14 JP 93 FWP         sail: 5.3 EZZY ELITE

 087 - Finally enough for a couple of good sessions.  Out and back to SI#1 with mostly medium power and of course smallish holes in and outside.  Did one run to the KRS and it was a mistake, too many weeds even with the weed fin. Looks like that's it for awhile.

More desperation LWF windsurfing. Big wind holes (down to zero) felt like sink holes without any power in the sail. Water was also mildly choppy due to the motorboat wake. I miss powered windsurfing.

 086 - Just some LWF to get on the water with nothing else in sight.  Woked on some things on the weak side.  Water is a little more refreshing now and the air is still hot.

board: WINDSURFER ONE DESIGN         sail: 5.3 EZZY ELITE

 085 - Finished 5th in the 12th Canal Crawl which had 11 sailors.  Two did not start and everyone else completed the course.  Had at least 6 ahead at the start, caught up to David positioned my board on his footstraps and we were wing on wing for awhile in the early part of the downwind leg.  Took the shallow water route at the turn into the IWC and had first going into the spoil islands.  Dropped to 4th place through the flats with Chip, Patrick and Kevin taking and holding the lead to the finish. Dropped to 6th place early in the last leg as Patrick and Clarence overtook me, managed to stay ahead of Patrick and passed Clarence when he fell in, but he recovered and passed me again to take 4th at the finish.  Chip was the winner, Patrick Koch, a first timer took second and Kevin Robbins finished third.  It was another great Canal Crawl and many thanks to John for having the group over for burgers and margaritas afterward.

 084 - Had to go late and missed all but about half an hour.  Rigged up north and went BAF at the Horseshoe Spoil.  Switched to the WOD and had a blast.  High water and wind direction made it BAF on the sandbar parallel and often within 5' of the shore on a plane.  Got a good feel for the board again to get ready for the Canal Crawl.  Good thing the gear got tested because the universai broke.

board: 112 FANATIC SKATE         sail: 6.1 EZZY ELITE

 083 - Weak forecast and weaker actual.  Did a couple of runs BAF at the Horseshoe Point. Started working up into the North Basin and ended up at North Bird Island.  Took the little channel out to the IWC at the spoil with the biggest trees.  It was only working 50% and less on the return to the launch.  Biggest sails were doing fairly well.  Looks like another week of limited wind.

 082 - First cold front of the season not expected to do much.  Launched at the north end and it was out to the North Cabins and back.  Rigged at max amd with some small holes and lulls managed to get medium power.  Most runs were fairly steady for the most part.  Did notice the few sailing from the day use parking were often slogging. One long session with lots of weeds and just a handful sailing.

board: 112 FANATIC SKATE         sail: 5.3 EZZY ELITE

 081 - Much better than the short attempt yesterday.  Out between the spoils and back with medium power and of course holes.  A few outbound on the drop-off and out to SI#2 and return to the north end.  Better than expected with just a handful out.

 080 - Didn't get there today, just close enough to try.  Mostly out to SI#2 where it was best but still on/off.  Did have a few good southbound runs on the drop-off as it shifted more easterly for awhile. Looks like three more ahead.
