Vanns for a few days and then Van Pugh

Cancel all non-essential plans for the forseeable future.

I'll be at Vanns on NE days on VP on SW/W/NW as much as I can for the next few days starting tomorrow. I may break out a fin Thursday.

Warning to my neighbors: Leaves will be piling up in my yard until further notice. Lol

It's inherent with any cat to have trust issues. Lol Source: Grew up with one for 14 years. No matter what, you never knew if he'd just pissed at you and give you a swipe.

I bought a paint sprayer last week with the intentions of painting the outside of my house this week.

You’re welcome!

Sailed Vanns yesterday with Hamdi. Wind was great early, then dropped as others arrived.

Dropped hard. Roland and I didn't even go out. Tried to get a sunset session in. Nice breeze but too steady around 7 so no puffs to get off the water. I don't get skunked that hard very often.

I'll be back again today to suffer lumps.

Gary, rigged an 8.0 and wore a 4/3 and it still didn't help. Too hot in that suit to even consider pumping although I would have if I thought there was a chance.

Started on a "4.2" Chopper until we hit a lull about an hour or so in. Not wanting to repeat yesterday, came in, ate lunch and pondered what to rig. Still looked like 5.4 would work but then decided on 6.9 to stay in front of the "diminishing wind" curve. Realized that I didn't have a clew pulley for the 6.9 and still wanting to stay ahead of the curve, rigged the 8.0 with 800 wing. Wind got spotty for a while and then resumed a frisky 15-20+. Shok Kept it glued together and kind of happy to have pushed the envelope a bit. Dave D (k), Hamdi Howard, Ed, (foil, fin, fin) Kim and Paul (wings) also made appearances through the day.

Edit: AND ALAN WAS THERE FOILING sorry, alan i forgot
