Taming the sea breeze

After waiting on low launch at Kahana while a remarkably strong and gusty sea breeze raised whitecaps on the bay (but nowhere else), it finally calmed down enough for Jorge to launch in his new wing and show us it was working.

He led Mad Dog and me to Pounders, but Mad Dog decided to land early at the beer store. Thanks to Jeanine for the ride back! Jeff, Jim and Maui Doug flew the late session - cloudbase had dropped to around two grand but the conditions had got even sweeter, and those guys soared around (and sometimes above) the clouds, toplanded a few times, and finally came down to share some beverages and stories.
