Gusty and holey but a seabreeze and sunshine in May are not to be sneezed at. First sail for a month!
There were a lot of planing moments and I gybed well today. Hard to stay upwind in the light breeze.
Thanks to Woody for inspiring me to go out. It was worth the effort. My light weight was an advantage today. It was fun to be able to pass people who usually are much faster than I am.

I was lucky enough to have a day off on such a wonderful warm summerish day
got on the water and nearly had the whole river all to myself all afternoon which I was quite surprised about on such a nice day when there was even enough wind for the slappas
never the less had a good time burning around on the small wing and 6.2 which was a nice change and it certainly has heaps of legs off the wind, quite enjoyed blasting across the river later on with a couple of slalom guys out from peli and being able to match them and even beat them when it got lumpy or light or in the jibes
however most entertaining part of the afternoon was watching a moth sailor fall out of his boat and the boat continue to sail on its own for nearly a Km downwind including it breifly fully foiling all on its own
but all up just another awesome day on the foil, can't beat it

Had a good workout with the JP 85 and NPv8 7.7. Hard to stay on the plane but certainly worth getting out after missing the wind last Sunday. Thanks for helping find my missing car key before sunset Anita. Lucky it was in the lock! And Kenny who trimmed the freeway 53knots from my file! one of those days and just glad to have got wet.
