 007 - Nothing forecast again short or long term.  Yesterday teased a little, tried the 6.1/Fanatic but with only planed a couple of times and had a well powered jibe at the bitter end at the north.  And did we say still nothing in the forecast?  Larry and Robert treated 20 or so with sausage & fixins to ring in SPRING as the fog rolled in at sunset.

006 -  It's been a long time and looks to be much longer.  Finally broke down and did some ULWF up at the north end.  Sailed on the sandbar around to the boat ramp and back for future reference.

 005 - Got a little in before what may be the coldest front yet,  Out and back to SI#1 and mid-way to SI#2 late.   It was mostly up/down low power slow plane mixed with consistent medium power mostly outside.  Not many powered jibes inside today but a nice work-out.

This graph pretty much describes what happened to me and Mike this morning. We parked at the jetty due to side-on conditions - my first time launching there. One long run to the end of the pier, but pretty offshore from it (the pier and shore looked teeny tiny) and the wind really lightened up and I could not get my plane back to jibe, blew my light wind jibe and wound up adrift for a while. Debating ways to reach shore, and how long I may have to paddle/walk. I could not seem to get my balance to uphaul, not sure if that was due to everything being the same shade of gray. Finally a nice little gust got me just to where I pulled out a water start. Saw Mike had been in the same situation, and the same gust reached him and he got up. We schlogged back in defeat, but at least made it back to the cars, with all gear. 

 

In the immortal words of Theodore Roosevelt, “It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.”

I shall forge onward into the spring season with my head held high and my dreams intact.

LWF with the 5.3 and ProWave. I really had a good time on the water until it went dead calm. I was able to get a duck tack in on port today.

I was late leaving my house. Traffic delayed me another 50 minutes. I still made it out, but most were leaving when I arrived.
