Up early his morning at sunrise to catch the early morning wind forecast. Rigged the 5.7 with the 101 liter board.
On the water by 7:30 just after sunrise, joined by Larry on his 5.5. We sailed in above marginally conditions that lasted for an hour before winds lightened up.
Came in and cooked breakfast blueberry buckwheat pancakes for the boys. Wanted to make sure they have enough for energy for the day ahead. After breakfast rigged the 11M kite and headed back out just as the wind picked up. Buttery smoothness with shallow water right in front of our house - didn't have to go far for this session. Kited in gusty conditions probably the most gustiness I every kited in.
An excellent closing day of another excellent OBX 2015 trip.
