Friday 4/24, Saturday, Sunday

I am planning on relearning how to foil at Vanns Tavern around 10am Saturday morning and foil until arms fall off

Hopefully practice will resume on Sunday either at OF or VP

Edit.
I will drive the windfoiling wagon Friday and watch the weather. Maybe can break out of work

Re: Saturday 4/25 , Sunday 4/26

Saturday morning looks moist and the afternoon west according to the GFS.
Friday pm looks good but light.
Look forward to Langdon learning to ride a bike again. Smile

Not sure who WindFlow uses for models. They are showing SE for Sat.

No matter... As long as I have wind coming from generally one direction I will find a launch.

As for the moisture...its jibe training so I guarantee I will be wet

Anyone going Fri? I am aiming mid morning to mid afternoon if forecast holds.

Yeah, all the models are kind of waffling on when the front will come through and the wind swings to the west. I think we'll end up looking at it until Saturday morning. As long as it doesn't go past SW, you'll be able to get back to Vanns. You are likely correct.

Hamid, I'm thinking about Friday, too.

If you see my car and no sign of me on the water, would you call a search party for downwind islands/land? 😄 Depending on how things go, I might see you towards the end of my session then.

Re: Friday 4/24, Saturday, Sunday

Today turned out ok.
I got to VP as Hamdi and Rhett were packing up.
Webguy and I pulled second shift and it was pretty good for an hour or so then the wind died off.

Hope to be on the water before 11 tomorrow

Good turnout, beautiful day

Not enough wind (until evening)

Way too much boat chop ( the whole time)

Boater be crazy. I think I’m going to put a bright red flashing LED on the top of my sail when I sail weekends on Lanier.

Considering we didn't do a lot of sailing, it sure was fun.

Oh wow, so sorry to hear. Did that happen after I left or when you went in the first time? I assume later as you didn't complain about anything like that after the first time?

Ouch on the toe! Got out at LLSC around 4. Wind clocked to south and picked up enough to get going with 7.5.
