Staring out my window while typing...

Randy and me if we had known each other in '81

Re: Sat Sunday Jan 16-17

Sorry webguy I don't get this post. Are you posting about sailing this weekend or missing Randy?

I'm personally more interested in going to windsurf tomorrow afternoon. Anyone else interested?

My usual cryptic sh*t-uff

ALMOST live update

VP, 2:15 Capping!

Stephan just came in to take break, planing on 8.4(?), thinks my 7.5 will work, nice sunny day, sort of warm day at 53 degrees. I'm thinking about it.

The wind came up as forecast. Had a great session despite cold. Sailed with William, Pyron, Ed & Gene. I rigged 7.0m every one else 6 meter range.

Glad you had a good time. Mine was excellent on Saturday. Felt more like spring with the temperature in the fifties.

Re: Sat Sunday Jan 16-17

Crazy looking at the Gainesville readings, you'd never imagine how filled in it was. Numbers like this in the summer mean a big sail. A 6 was plenty today with only lulls at the edges. As long as you didn't wander too close too shore, you never really worried about coming off a plane.

Last week I was a jibe hero. This week, splash city. I blame the cold.

What's happened to the Gainesville anemometer? Thanks for pointing this out. I agree with your comment that away from the shore, the wind on the water was actually quite steady & strong.
