We had a cold front push through on Friday which made for some pretty decent windsurfing. Ron and I had visions of sailing at Virginia Key on Saturday but it didn't work out so I ended up sailing at the causeway around 2:00 in the afternoon. Wind was straight down the river and it was heavily overcast. I rigged a 7.0 on the 118L bic with a 52cm fin. The wind was up and down and the tide was running out at a pretty good rate. I was able to sail about a mile north of the causeway into some pretty decent wind. I saw Art was way up the river and worked his way down and we sailed near each other. Brandon was finishing up when I arrived and Ron, James, Canadian Dave and a few others were on the water.
Sunday I arrived around 2 again with similiar conditions but it was nice and sunny. I rigged the same and sailed in the same area. Dino and Tom were in the vicinity and as it got later the wind increased. At one point we were blasting across the river heading west with the sun low in the sky. Even with poloraized sun glasses it was hard to make out much detail like shallow water markers or the approaching docks on the west side. James. Art, Ron and Canadian Dave were on the water. Jerry, Cape Cod Dave, Joel, Susan and a few others were finishing up when I arrived. Also joing us was was my lovely and vivacious wife Tammy and our dog Willa.
