|Wind on Saturday|
After that we had our potluck with the insider sailors. Macro brought his famous Argentinian sausages and damn was that good! Nothing is more fun than sailing and enjoying a meal with good company! On a side note, there is a bunch of new sailors now on the inside! If I can remember correctly, welcome to the Cabrillo Windsurfing Family Brian, Carlo, and Ryan! Hopefully you guys can all join us at our next pot luck!
Sunday was similar to Saturday but the wind picked up a lot earlier. I was very well powered up on my 7.4/95L combo and spent most of my time and effort on speed runs. I managed to set a personal best for the inside of Cabrillo at a 5x10 average of 26.92 knots. What I'm really happy about is that my 10sec runs are getting closer to my 2 sec peaks IE. 10sec run: 28.79 knots 2sec peak:29 knots. While not the highest numbers I've clocked, I feel that these are pretty darn good considering the gusty lull conditions of the inside. A thing to note was my 2 VMaxs (31 and 35) arrived. First impressions felt like I was going slower with them on my 95L AHD SL1 than compared to my SL7. Alas, the GPS proved I was actually going faster thankfully. Like the saying goes, if you feel like you are going fast you are probably not haha! What I really like about the VMax's is that they don't have the drag feel that the SL7 does. While the SL7 is a powerful fin, it seems to have a draggy feeling at higher speeds. Also the VMax definitely does deep downwind runs (>110) a whole lot better thanks to the rake. All in all very pleased with it's performance. Can't wait to use the 31 with my 6.6 on the right day!

Hope to see some of you at the beach today but if not I'll see you guys when I get back.
Till Next Time!
PS: Forgot to say Jack will be trying out a 8.5 KA Koncept. It took me quite sometime to get it to fit in my car with a 7.4!
