Got wet!

Lake Ontario Club Lasalle, St Cathrines

Wasn't planning to sail today as yesterday I felt I was coming down with a cold, But I took some drugs both last night and this Morning. Northshore called to start me up. By noon, I went outside, sun shining, it was not cold and it was windy and I was not feeling too bad, so I loaded up and took off, Northshore and another guy on and off a plane when I arrived. Sailors off the water for a break, feedback was to rig 5.6. Took out my quad, but was too light for that, so I got the bigger board. Session was O.K. but I hate sooo much neoprene! Toasty warm, but boots too thick and can't feel the board, and too many layers on me make me feel too stiff! I think I got to ditch these new booties and go back to my old stuff! Lots of pinching to keep upwind today. Glad I got out!
