More Lex Pics. Great satellite and Ft. G chart shots.

Sunday Aug. 27 Sun Day, Wind Day Classic Lex

Lex all day 25-35 NNE - one of the best Lex days I can think of - a ton of people out - even surfing... pure sun no clouds, 75 degrees, 3-6 inside waves 5-9ft. outside... Fully powered 4.5 from 11am until 3pm when I quit - arms were fully fried. I was first one there and on water with Larry (kiting-he slept in parking lot overnite!) at 8am - 11 on 5M when it was surprisingly flat with very little wave or swell. Lex classic summer cranker for August and it wasn't windy anywhere in the state but Huron coast due to Irene back end...

Two days later and I'm still beat - most exhausted sailing sesh I can ever remember - popping Alleve's like Pez...

Wed. Aug. 24 Sun and Metro bring out the crowds.

Busy day at MB with clear blue skies and 20+ S-SSW winds that weren't rock hard but were really consistent. I got 5.7 and 4.5 small hull action way out past point which was a beautiful Aruban Blue. Good day for August around here. Too bad my remote on POV wasn't working right, I had a ton more stuff I missed...

Wed. Aug. 10, Blue Lagoon 5m Day

Good day after 3 weeks of hot humid nothing. Lots of people out enjoying sun, 80 degrees and 20mph WNW breezes. 5m and 85 FSW working great to start but later 5.7m and the 107. Almost 5 full hours on water for me - even the second shifters got some late blasts. Let's hope for some more north days!!

Sun. Aug. 7th A Lotto Poto.

As if Highland wasn't enough yesterday, we had to add 20+ more miles at Poto. This place never seems to stop presenting more and more hills to climb. Too much for me after nearly 3 hours. JAB made it look easy from my view of his back tire speeding away.

Sat. Aug. 6th Highland Sweat Fest

Did Highland in rain today. Slipped (clipped out)a pedal on small drop out and didn't fall but smashed my shin pretty bad 5 minutes in. Went back to my car as a golf ball appeared there almost instantly and it started to rain. Thankfully it was cut too and started to bleed out so the golf ball didn't turn into a baseball. I said @uck-it and rode back into a rain storm for almost 2 hours of real slick rock. Bike coated in sand and mud. 90 degrees and 90% humidity and rain.

Lots of fun when you're wanting to get a good ride in. 14.45 miles in 1:45.
