Hi Gang,

It sure has not been a great Gorge season except for May. But yesterday, after weeks of smoke in the hot air, we had smoke on the water and hot action.

Men were on 3.7 to 3.2 sails and women on 2.8 to 2.5's. with a good mixture of kite foils, yachts and SUP foils

So here is a mixture of photos of regular sailors and local hotshots. Hard to believe but all these photos were shot in a 20 minute period. This speaks volumes about the intensity of the Gorge scene.

I only had a cheapo pocket cam with me but still, the shots are interesting.

A few photos are below but to see all the action go to my personal website:

Dawn patrol entertainment this morning was provided by 5 excellent kiters who came to the Hatchery from Hood River. As the wind picked up and windsurfers started heading out at 9:00 they headed back.

That early kite session was literally the Executive Session. Off to business afterwards...
