With all this hot weather prediction, it sounded like there wasn't
gonna be any wind for a couple days...boy was I glad I had my small
gear yesterday at 3rd !

The bay was really cranking. I ended up sailing with a 4.2 (190#) from 4-7 at
3rd. Started with a 4.7 with a lot of downhaul but I figure I'll try the 4.2
since I rarely ever get to use it. Perfect size. The weather and water was
really warm - felt like maui, only dirtier :-) nice to be able to wear a
shorty after so many days at the coast. The inside at 3rd had really nice
ramps and swells (channel was kinda flat) - major air time. Some people
looping like there was no tomorrow !.

It didn't even feel like it was flooding - I kept carving down faces and
always seems to be upwind from the launch. weird ! maybe the COTW tide info
was wrong, but then again the level at the launch seems be be rising over

One, if the not THE, best day of the year !
Who would have known....bottom line is: always bring all your gear, even in
those hot dead weather !

nothing to do but smile, smile...
