This weekend April 22-23

Foiling/big sail Saturday? Friday looks like a maybe, too.

Atlanta is a funny place. Two days of 4.5/5.2 and then two weeks of ... yard work.

Re: This weekend April 22-23

I think between the crowds and wind direction, that would be a good call.

Forecast looks promising. I'm in if there's wind.

Not really sure. On SW it's a bit side shore. There's not that much beach but there may be enough exposed with the water down.

Noon report sunrise lots of caps. I may rig 6
Park sign says closes at 5

Plenty of space for kites

Wind has enough west that van Pugh should be good. Not many boats on water here

Re: This weekend April 22-23

Maybe there was a reason why no one else showed up at Old 41. More a nostalgia type thing on my part I guess. The best part - it was blowing when I was rigging and blowing when I was breaking my sail down. In between? Not so much.

You guys do any better at Tequila Sunrise?

Re: This weekend April 22-23

With Sunrise closing at 5PM and VanPugh being full, we sailed at Old Federal. After all the driving around, the wind dropped, so it was a big board day with brief episodes of planing in the gusts. Langdon said he had plenty of wind in the morning.

Perhaps the morning the winds were better, then it heated up and Dr. Webster's dreaded dome effect took over.

Re: This weekend April 22-23

Sunday late afternoon 5pm till sunset.
Parking lot was empty, you culd be in a wetsuit and dont swet, wind was shifting from EN to N and back. Good clearing wind. Sail 8.5, sometimes OP, but over all very very nice session.
