Yes, 105 at the SJ Airport. High 90's in my back yard in Sunnyvale.

I sailed my 6.1/9'3" Friday, Sat and Sunday at Coyote. Wind was good
Sat and Sunday from 4 to 6PM with lighter people having fun well past
7PM. Friday, I sailed up to Oyster Pt and it was blowing 5.1 below
Tigers between 5 and 6PM (sailed from 3 to 6:30 PM).

At Coyote we got loads of people that will have interesting "***crack"
stories to tell their kids. Seems a large portion of the population
now runs around in "shorts" that are a bit shorter than "floods". The fashion
trick is to see just how low one can wear their "shorts" and not get a
ticket (you get a ticket at Coyote if ya expose yer privates while
changing out of a wetsuit). Seems that a tatoo is also highly desirable.
Does the music go "boom, boom, thump at Crissy on a sunny day? 8-)
