Tue 9/ 15 ... Lather Rinse Repeat

Long range but next Tuesday is looking good for Vanns again.
Shooting for 8am ... Be there early or be the late bird without a worm.

Slightly off topic.

Tomorrow's windsurfing forecast is improving depending on where the rain is / is not

Saturday: Now there are dots in the forecast, but also chance of rain and t-storms. I have a sore leg (made worse by 3 days of much flogging and too little foiling this week) so I'm on the (electric?) fence.

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

I’m considering going this morning as well. Rain I don’t mind, Lightning is a different story, but the forecast calls for the thunderstorms starting early afternoon.

Live report from Vanns at 10:30am

There is a steady consistent breeze here but it is sub 10mph.
Not enough for me to rig but enough to keep me here for a little bit to see if it increases.

Currently overcast but no rain. Gainesville is reporting ~5 kts. I am seeing more than that here.
I do not know if GVL under reports East winds due to physical location of Wx Station or not.

Very little boat traffic. A few bass boats. I do not see any credit card captains about

5 sailboats in view. All moving but not keeled over

Parking lot almost empty

Edit at 11:00 am
More wind, but I still think under 10mph
No rain, clouds going overhead quickly

Edit at noon
Sun is out and so are the credit card captains.
Going to go cut grass

Re: Tue 9/ 15 ... Lather Rinse Repeat

Thanks for the updates Langdon and sorry it didn't pan out for you today. I was on the fence based on various forecasts showing conflicting outlook. Seeing your updates, opted for a long swim at the pool and ended up setting a PR in distance for me (3050m, just under 1.5hrs).
Hopefully Tues will pan out much better.

Chris V has said before that GVL is slightly windshadowed on an east so tends to slightly under report.

"credit card captains" - Lol
