We had a sunny and 50/50 breezy/windless night at city league.
At 5:30pm, a mid 10s breeze was blowing at Des Moines. We could see scattered white caps in the Sound. A total of 11 windsurfers attended the event.
Once we were ready to start, the wind had dropped and we were barely moving. Due to the risk of the wind dying, several individuals decided to fun sail but not race around the course. Others (Darius and I) started late because we were not close to the starting line, and it took forever to get there. We only had a race and was highly technical. After this race, we called the day.
The cumulative score to date suggests we will have some interesting races on the last scheduled date as the top 2 racers are within 4 points after 7 events and 18 races.
