We had a pretty good time on the water. The Jensen wind history shows it blew 25 - 35 ESE for most of the day. We sailed on the west island, south side on an incoming tide. It was heavily overcast with bands of rain coming through. At times it was hard to see with the rain pelting against your face. My first session was on a 6.0 with my 92L wave board and then later on I put the same sail on my 88L slalom board. We pretty much sailed south of the island. Way down at the south end it was fairly flat with solid wind and made for some fast jibing. I did sail the channel twice down past the spoil island, the channel would have been awesome if the tide was low. I should have rigged a 5.2 later in the day, but it was good. Ron, Dorian, Art, David, Dino, Mat, Dennis and a friend of Dennis sailed.
