Hood River Waterfront Park,

Loft Racing blade 5.6 Naish SP80 Vector Volt 29 then NP EVO8 6.4 rdm mode Replica Naish SP95 Vector Volt 32

Unusual day, very gusty and lots of weird small chop with cross swell. Hard to get comfortable and dial every thing in. Couple of days break now until wind returns later in the week.

Langlois, OR, US - Floras Lake

Sailworks Retro 7.5, Goya Bolt 115, MFC KPR-42 Wind: 12G18

Better day today from yesterday. Average wind was a knot or two stronger today (and less holey in the middle of the lake) which made a noticable difference. Surprisingly, the wind was stronger on the east side of the lake with big holes in the jibing area on the west... Wind lasted longer today as well.

As per yesterday, sailing without the fleece top under the drysuit made a huge difference - no overheating and I had better stamina.

Getting comfortable with the Bolt 115 - I like it. When I did catch a gust and was able to 'lock it down' is was a sweet ride. Unfortunately, the gusts were just not big enough to carry any speed when running downwind so I tried, with only marginal success, to work on low-wind jibes. Oh well. Still a good day as the TOW is getting me more comfortable and confident to deal with the conditions Roo described today for Waterfront Park.

Wow look at all the jelly beans you've picked up this month! Glad you got some TOW now time to get back to the Gorge and man up!

Pretty easy to accumulate jelly beans when there are only two of us sailing, all I have to do is show up on the same day you sail. Laughing Of course, when Jules starts sailing, I'll loose them all...

Looking like Friday will probably be the start of 'man up' days (have to be back in Corvallis on Tuesday, June 13 for Claudia's cataract surgery).
