Nothing special

Lake Ontario Mac's

Rigged 5.8M on 106L as not as windy as hoping for. Point Petre was showing 29 mph driving there, what gives? Spent a good amount of time goofing around trying to get set up balanced. A bit frustrating. The rock shelf was like the rocks at Rowena ( ever sailed there you'll know what I mean) - SLIMY to the point of zero traction with side shore current. Made tricky at time and some nice spaz moves on my behalf. End of session, nice sun but lighter wind which had me bump up to 6.4M. Had fun, but no big crazy waves or super nuke conditions I was hoping for. Freakin Fathom / light weight makes me sick! That's it, I'm losing 70 lbs so I can be on a 4.5M and 86L board.

Weather Conditions

Some waves but nothing super clean or set up on the inside. Nice rollers outside for nice long jibes but low sun made for some wicked glare off sail mid jibe.
