East Wind Thursday 6/24

Please post if you're up for sailing tomorrow's East wind. I prefer launching at Van Pugh. Only a slight chance of rain in the Fx.

If FX holds, I will try Vans.

I’m going to Vann’s since I would probably end up there anyway if I start at VP tomorrow.

It's an east wind - Vann's is upwind of VP. However, I did get caught out once way upwind when the wind cranked up and getting back downwind and home was a bear. Basically, had to drift home.

Decent breeze during our morning walk around our neighborhood lake in Roswell. All forecasts showing decent wind/gust at Lanier by 9-10. Heading up to Vans shortly as I need to be out by noon.

Vans live 9am - nice breeze, 6.4 or 5.7 for me

Edit- picking up. Langdon would make 4.7 work with his snow shovel converted wing

Re: East Wind Thursday 6/24

For those who haven’t gotten to the lake yet - after a pretty good hour with 5.7, i came out to either rerig with 7.6 or call it a day. Definitely lighter now. Since i am already here, likely I will try 7.6 but may not be worth a trip if I called it based on conditions right now. Or it might turn on…who knows….
