Wow, what a day. It was like a water park out there. This was the 4th 6.9 day in a week. Everybody was in a good mood out there - fishermen, motorboats, sailboats, I headed my way up wind and would use the top of the party coves to jibe in. Long reaches. I would race anything that crossed my path. The water was warmer than the air. It made some of the best swell for the wind speed. I got to sail with Rich again. I got off the water around 6:00. My 6.9 with RRD 108L(68 cm wide), with 38 cm fin is making for a hell of a summer set-up. It reaches down and grabs 15 mph wind and can handle a brief gust to 30 mph. And still maneuvers / feels like a freestyle wave. I can't wait to sail it on Michigan swell for those "almost" days.
End of day(around 6:15pm). Left wind on the table

The Turkey Vultures let you know you're at the right launch.
They always ride the best up draft off the treeline for the day.
