Mellow training day, did two 1 hour sessions to keep in shape. Started on Mistral Speed 55, been a while since I rode it. Still sorting out the right fin for it in the chop, felt pretty slippery. Ended up on the Naish replica for a good fang.
Barton was back in town, good to catch up and hear of all his new toys. He had to head home early as his wife is poorly, best wishes from all of us for a quick recovery.

Sailworks Retro 6.5, Goya Bolt 115, MFC KP-R42. Wind: 16G23 knots
Was great to be back in da Hood. Spent yesterday helping the local windsurfing economy by purchasing more gear for Oregon. Got Sailworks NX 6.2, 7.0, and 7.8 race sails, a carbon boom, two carbon masts, a mast base and extension, and a new Goya Bolt 125. I had originally planned on purchasing the Bolt 135 liter board but after looking at the board and talking with the Goya rep (Jason) it was clear the Bolt 125 was the correct board to solve my light wind issues.
Today I finally made it on the water a little after 10 AM. The equipment selection worked well. Made a few runs, even had a nice jibe on the inside and then the niggling cramping began. Decided to take a break and have a banana, since I had all day... Durning the break I got a call from our primary care doctor regarding the results of my wife's CT scan. All windsurfing focus vanished. Time to derig and head home.
