I got flipped the bird because I was rudely sailing too slow for some Richie Rich and his monster PB. He was forced to have to change his position by a few degrees... GASP To think.... the nerve I must have to be in his water

I also witnessed some slow motion child abuse as some moron has his small kids (under 8 maybe) sitting on the bow of his 18' flats bowrider...feet dangling over the full speed...with no life jackets....bounding through 3-5' rollers on the Gulf!

On a positive note. The winds were fierce! In fact, I was having a difficult time turning through the wind thanks to my windage. Instead of turning tail and going home to momma I decided to muster on and practiced pulling off perfectly timed S-jibes over and over. A jibe under considerable wind pressure will put some hair on your chest.... Fun fun!
