Sunday - Old Lifeguard Beach
I've been to Maui many times, but the sailing yesterday at Old Lifeguard Beach was about as good as it gets! The outer bar was breaking, waves were chest to head high, and the wind was solid SW mid twenties, water was warm and the UVs were beamin'.
What a cool venue to hang out with some great sailors.
I'm really honin' in on my well earned, new found foward skill with my two best rotations attempts yet. Bill commented that the sail rotated perfectly, landing in the water start position.
I'll be working on gettin' that back hand back, pulling in with the back hand, and lookin' back. Bill and Keith, thanks for all the encouragement and coaching. I'm deeply gratefull.
Bad fall today. Going into a bottom turn and my footstap yanked out of the insert. I'm talking the entire screw just popped out. Needless to say I wiped out pretty bad. My hand is pretty swollen, but its all good. war wounds.
Ken also had his best rotation while Bill, Janis and I stood on the beach cheering! This event has been completely awesome for both of us as we both achieved our goals!
Here's Ken's best forward to date:
The are so many good photos of me and my friends. My wife is so awesome!
