Almost did not go

Simcoe Beaverton

Should have driven up to Allenwood with hangloose but the forecast was kind a fluffy. Went to Beaverton instead, a bunch of people there including rINR and C36 (both have customized marked sails). Nice to meet C36 after reading all his beautiful Pistol River posting. It was for the most part nicely windy. The wind would lessen when under a cloud and blow when sunny. The ramps never materialized except for maybe 1/2-1hr as it was shifting from W to NW. Highlight for me was 7-8 forward attempts including one where I was almost in water start position (under the sail), nice thing is the fear is gone and it was actually fun to pop, wait a split second then rotate.

Mostly sailed the NP 4.5, and finished with the 5.8

Can't wait for a real wave session, hopefully before Fall
