Kalmus and Egg Island, Cape Cod. Forecast called for 18 mph, we got the usual WSW boost to 24. My knee started hurting a bit sailing in the chop in front, so I went over to Egg Island for some smoother water. Nice there, but a rain front moved in. Just as I wanted to sail back, Nina also came over to play in the kiddie pool. It took me a while to get to her to tell her that I was heading back due to the coming rain. On the way back, there was tons of boat traffic, which delayed me a bit further. Nina went just before a small cruise boat and the high speed ferry - but she never falls going in a straight line. I sometimes do, and a fall at the wrong time would have had nasty consequences, so I waited. Just as the boat channel was clear, the wind clocked around 90 degrees, and all the upwind progress I had made now had put me further downwind! The change of directions also made the chop rather steep and the going very slow. Fortunately, the gusts never went much above 30, which was manageable on 110 FS/6.0 FR gear, and we only got rain, not a thunderstorm. We eventually both made it back.

New Washoe City, NV, US (Little Washoe Lake)
Finally tried to sail at Little Washoe Lake today, the lake is about 600x500m, really hard to sail at, gusty and shifty. Also, I've had to do downwind runs with left foot forward which is unusual to me, that's why probably I crashed two times, the first time it was a "braking crash" when I got too close to the shore.
Pretty sure it was a speed record for the spot.
