Wind!!!!! Glorious wind!!!!!! Glad you got some Michael. I even managed to get a surprise 5.2 ssh at the training grounds a couple days ago. More wind tomorrow at Heckscher! Good times are back!!

Take care when windsurfing/bathing in enclosed ponds on Long Island. Mill Pond in Watermill, which drains in to Mecox Bay, has tested positive for blue-green algae, aka toxic cyanobacteria. I don't believe Mecox has been ocean-flushed since Spring, due to the ongoing drought. (Editors note: Jon Ford reports that Mecox was flushed in the last week. Still, it's good to be mindful to not chug any of the bays this summer.)

    "It's good to have a shredmobile" my friend Caldwell said, so I made one. It's a Ford E150 cargo van done up with lumber and k-mart plastic boxes.
