Re: Friday afternoon?

Not a good direction for a forecast showing diminishing winds in the pm especially since it's coming with a chance of precip.

Saturday morning not looking so good anymore but that may improve. Sad

Seconding Chris's emotion. Good

Hmmm, earlier in the day maybe? Better chances if it's overcast. It'll be light at any rate.

Paul called it. Dots (as of now) most of the day tomorrow. Radar will be your friend, though.

Re: Friday afternoon?

I got a van, loaded with (wind) weapons, packed up and ready to go…
Please somebody give a live report!

Re: Friday afternoon?

Had a server go wonky this morning so stuck at home.

Doesn't look like I've missed much yet.

edit 10:42 Neil just texted and apparently a bit of a breeze. More than what I sailed in yesterday (which was really light but enough).

Neil posted some pics: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gainesville-Georgia/112601478754411

Neil, Chris P, Alejo and Dave D went out at Vanns. I bailed not feeling well and Paul ran out of time. Barrett and Chris V. windfoiled VP.

Re: Friday afternoon?

Thanks to William for a live report. Chris V & I mostly dodged the rain at Van Pugh rigging our biggest sails. Chris was trying out his new Sailworks, camber-induced 8.5m while I sailed my Ezzy 8.0 Cross. We had two good foiling sessions. Between sessions we headed for shore when the wind picked up to 20-25 mph drizzled a bit, dropped to zero, then picked up again from the East.
