I sailed until about 10.45, still about a foot of water over the sandbar near shore.

Hit Gary Point Park again this morning as it was 40 mins less of a drive than Acadia. Rigged 4.2 and took out the 73L but it was gusty (18-30 knots) so I switched up to the 101L. Planed through the lulls but there was a lot of chop mixed with waist to shoulder high swell rolling up river as the tide dropped. Weird wind direction (hence the lulls) switching between WSW and WNW so almost spooky at times with the fast current and light wind. The chop started to clean up as it got closer to low tide but the wind started backing off so called it a day. Not much for river traffic except for 1 barge, a Seaspan Ferry, and a couple smaller boats.

Pumped 7m+TT for AltonJR on the Acadia sandbar at 11am ... 9m+surfboard for me. Amazingly smooth waist high waves for tons of fun. As wind dropped AltonJR took my 9m so I pumped up my 12m for a little more fun.

Nice chatting with windsurfers Ryan and JoeBlo.
