Got out last night:

Set 1 - sun was right on the buoy line and gates, but I skied well with the sun to my back.

6@ 15/30
3@ 15/32 (%$#@ sun in eyes)
6@ 15/32
3@ 15/34 (%$#@ sun in eyes)
4@ 15/34
4@ 15/34 (%$#@ sun in eyes)

Set 2... Winds shifted, giving me a nice head/tail wind (hate tailwinds) I kept it @ 32 mph to work on a few things...

3@ 15/32 (tailwind)
6@ 15/32
3@ 15/32 (tailwind)
6@ 15/32
3@ 15/32 (tailwind)
6@ 15/32
6@ 15/32 (figured out the tailwind finally)
6@ 15/32

==========

While I only for to 4 @ 22/34 this year, missing my goal of running 28 off, I didn;t do too bad considering a poor 1st half of the season plagued with a bad elbow...

Awesome! I have a feeling we can push each other. I did 4@30/-15 a couple of weeks ago, and I've got a new ski for 2014 :-)
