 079 - About as forecast but it didn't shift enough so it was choppy and gusty.  Out between the spoils and back with varying power.  Sailed the entire time solo.

 078 - Another nice one mostly on the shoreline.  Seemed gusty but was underpowered some  Made it south to SI#3 and back on the shoreline from Boom Point a few times.  Did a few to the north end after the sail line came in.

 I tried vulcans and some other stuff a little bit, but ended up mostly on fundamentals--trying jibing in the straps, over and over. I'm much stronger at this on starbord and could sometimes do it without losing a plane. Port I was completing maybe half of them, but sloppier. I think the skills practice was really beneficial and I made a lot of progress.

077- Oh yea light but offset by the great direction, made it easy to plane along the drop-off both ways.  Out between the spoils a few times and south to Boom Point.  Able to do the drop-off through Cut-n-Shoot also but only did one round trip.  Definitely a classic summertime smoothie and only TB & RM were out today on 8.2's.

Sadly my awesome new glasses don't fit under my helmet. Other than that, fun day, a group of us all showed up at the same time and launched. The talk everywhere is that this will be the last wind until maybe next week. Tide still very low, but with my 15cm fin it's no problem. I worked on various things and didn't want to leave. But a fun post sesh shower with my new hose softened the blow.

 076 - Thought there would be a little more wind but it never filled in or shifted and it was peak time of the day..  Out between the spoils was OK but the inside was weak.  Slight chance over next few days but it looks pretty light.

 075 - Similar to yesterday, maybe a bit more.  Out to SI#1 and back to the north end.  Inside holes were less and there was more power at the end.  Next couple look sorta iffy.

 074 - More wind and back to the choppy, gusty and shifty south wind thing.  Mostly powered everywhere going out between  the spoils and back to the north end.  Sorta up/down inside and only returns were on the drop-off.  Not that many out on a windy week-end?

Super solid afternoon wind at Bird. Easy planing with some very good punchy gusts. Blistered up both hands and blew up my R forearm tendons with inflammation, but definitely worth it and the 8 hour round trip drive. Windsurfing sweetness.

 I'm behind on logging. This was an awesome day where I packed for a whole day on the island, brought some favorite treats (guacamole, watermelon juice), went running, surfing, and had two freestyle sessions. The best part was a made a pseudo sort of vulcan, not using that method on purpose, but I was able to do the whole move minus the pop. Andy said his girlfriend learned that way and it worked. That was on starboard. My port attempts were lagging. Fun post sesh at B&Js.
