Friday afternoon 8/28 practice session

I hope to be at Old Federal around 2 pm.
I will be a good opportunity to remember how to Windsport before Saturday's festivities

Roland, looks right on the edge of being okay. Directly south is a tough one. If it goes a touch SE, then there's a bit of a shadow. Vann's Tavern across the lake works on S but if it goes a touch SW, same thing.

Right now, it looks S/SW so from my armchair, Old Fed gets the vote.

Long lines of rain approaching quickly from the SW. I don't think I can get there in time to get anything in before it hits. Some of them look pretty heavy fwiw.

No sweat man. You can miss one practice. It's just practice. Not an actual windsurfing day, it's just practice.......

What happens in a black hole stays in a black hole.

I did mine closer to home. I would have used a real sail, but it was just practice anyway.

Howard, Nam and his 3 friends
windsurfed and I foiled.
Wind had a lot of South in it at times.
Nam and friends are improving.

Looking forward to tomorrow

That dock is quite familiar!
