We sailed to this little island again, after exchanging the boat. I tried to swim (Red Cross 15 mile challenge: 500 yards that incl pool after tennis) but unable: too busy with boats coming and going, and jet skis.

8-6, 3-2

A few serves and good warm up, . I served out the first set with John, (regular games), my only hold of the set; with one double fault. The second set with Larry I did a little better; held both my serve.

… the good warmup
