Saturday - Vivacity, with David and Camille. Sunny and pleasant.
Sunday - Vivacity, with Steve and au-pair Petra. Pleasant also.
Thursday - O'Day Mariner, with Kris. Nice and sunny, with a soft breeze.
Saturday - windsurfing, 4.7 sqm, also on the Sailboards Maui. Great: stormy and grey. Allegedly the windiest day in decades. They only let me go out after having recuperated the capsized and downed boats from the lake.
Sunday morning - windsurfing, 5.7 sqm, 7 sqm. Great also: windy, cool but partly sunny. No other sailors all morning.
Sunday afternoon - O'Day Mariner with reefed sails, with Jonathan and kids. Very tricky, with the boat heeling over in the waves.
Saturday - O'Day Mariner, with Paul and Sam. Pleasant; a soft breeze, not very warm but sunny.
Sunday - windsurfing, 6.8 sqm. A bit windier, but with the wind coming from the SE, the hills block part of it. The water was very flat though. I was the only one out windsurfing in the morning. The conditions were marginal for planing, but there were a few good reaches.
Wednesday - windsurfing, 6.2 sqm, 5.8 sqm. Just for an hour or two. Very cold, with a gusty NW wind. Still, there were a few other windsurfers, and even two or three sailboats. A lot of struggling, cramped muscles, one scary catapult because the loose foot pads were blocking the foot straps. By the time I finally got the 5.8 sqm sail nicely trimmed, I was exhausted. The last reach was nice though, which made it all worthwhile.
Saturday - Hobie 18, lesson with Nathan and other students. Great fun! The catamaran flies in the slightest breeze. The water is getting cold, but we didn't capsize.
Saturday - O'Day Mariner, with Paul. Pleasant, sunny day, with a fair breeze.
Friday - O'Day Mariner, with mum and dad! Sunny but cold, with a brisk wind from the NW. With a reefed main sail, everything went smoothly. The crew could use some more training...
