How was Berkeley today, 5/3?

Looks like I was a day early for the Ashby wind party. Any reports? I know, "I missed it".

(Unlike tomorrow at SI).

Well, it could have been better. Seemed like all indications were that it was going to ramp up hard and go. Ebb tide and all. Had to work hard to get out, was marginally powered for a bit, then it started fading fast, real fast. Was 200 yards out from the restaurant when I started running back as fast as I could. Had to pump the kite harder and harder as I got closer. Was passing a windsurfer thinking it won't be long before my kite goes down and he's going to come up behind me and over my lines. Just barely made it back to the beach, bodydragging with my board the last 100 feet.

So you didn't miss much, I'd say. I'd like to join you at Sherman tomorrow, but my work days are short enough as is, so I'll have to try for the Bay.

Send it!

I'm surprised it wasn't better! Today looks good though, I'm feeling a little too sick to go to work.

As LMG would say, "Sending!".
