Uggh! Free all holiday weekend, but of course no wind nearby. The Extended Forecast is ... wait for it ... "wind returns Tuesday" ... of course. Hope eveyone else is in better shape.

The wind gods don't work weekends or holidays.

Wind funk here too. Berkeley.
Today, staying home and working on the house. Winds don't want to climb over 20 in the gusts, so no good.

My own dang fault ... I really should move to where the wind is. I'd take anything over 14 ... that Berkeley meter sure looked good from my perspective.

Well, drove down in the car (not the van) and sure enough, 10 sailors planing solidly, my buddy at 180lbs flying along on a NaishGP125 and 7.5. Always pays to check with your own eyes.

Today should be good sailing. I'm headed down to the beach this morning. It shouldn't be crowded with weekend warriors both with motors and without. What a joy.
