East Wind Tuesday

The forecast tomorrow morning is E 10-15 G 25, so if the forecast hold up, I plan on sailing - probably at Van Pugh. Please post if you can go.

If I can get up in time I may come do the early shift.

Re: East Wind Tuesday

It turned out to be a good session with my 7.0 m sail & 122L board. Wind was NE & pretty steady at first, then lulls, or breaks in the gusts. Gainesville under-reports East wind.

Today at MAP. Unfortunately, the image got blurry, I should have splashed some water on it from time to time.

There is no off season.

Figures since I couldn't make it it would be good.

Re: East Wind Tuesday

Randy, when were you sailing on the 6.0m? I sailed a 7.0m between 10:30-11:30AM and needed it.
Thanks for posting the video.

Around 9-11. Lots of pumping, esp. earlier.

The design has changed a bit since the one I have (which I bought on Ebay) so the configuration is a little different. It is a little bit misleading to say you could use it for all 3 sports - to do windsurf and kitesurf you might also need the longer fuselage - go to their chat and they are pretty good about telling you what you need to do kites and windsurf. Ships from Dubai I think.

There is no off season.
