Best Easterly I've ever sailed! I think there must have been more North in it than usual as it was easy to get out towards the mile marker but you got pinched coming back in. For about an hour I just sailed south of the boarder and almost sailed to the end of Lilly Point a few times. There was about 5 knots more wind out there and some really big breaking waves, best I've seen down there, like I was freaking out big.

Wow! Congrats. Wish I had the energy to join you but I got too chilled in 2hrs.

Next time!! Ya it was cold, 2 hours for me and I was done. Had to stop and warm my hands 3 times and feet were completely numb by the end. I'm glad I went out a little later than expected and rigged the 4.3. I actually rigged then realized I had forgotten my gloves at home. By the time I got back the wind was up nicely.

Sorry Dave, not sorry Johnny, you're on the plane to Maui so think of me in that warm blue water riding logo high sets!!! My last reach out there though there was a lull and it was a hard slog back. The big waves must have been creating a lot of current running south as at times it was hard to get planing on the way back. After that I stayed between 3rd and just past the boarder as there were nice waves around there too, wind really started to crank so I made my way back to Centennial and called it a day. Have fun Johnny, send some pics if you can! :D :D

8-) Glad some were out there enJOYing it (and the Furry Creek crew too)! :D :D :D
