Funday Sunday?

Got some nasty looking patches on my old stick (windsurfing board, for you filthy minded). Ready to fly. Where we going?

Veep I guess. Launching from Old Fed would be PITA with the foils with the water up.

I think you should name your foil Toto. (no, not the band... )

Re: Funday Sunday?

Thinking about joining you guys. What time? Looks like the wind is coming in later, like around 4:00. Will crowds be an issue?

Name your foil... https://www.fencing.net/forums/threads/whats-the-name-of-your-foil-epee-sabre.2370/

Wow, both windlord and TVAW at Van Pugh. Heavens to Betsy, worth going just to see this! Lol

Seriously, looking forward to seeing you both there.

A little inspiration via Langdon:

Robbie doesn't even bother wearing a harness. Around 4:00 you can hear what it's like on a foil. Just the wind.

I big thanks to Gene Mathis.
When he pulled in he brought the wind with him.
Ed, CP and myself had a good evening session.
Eariler in the day Windlord, Webguy and myself cruised around and I think Webguy got a few flights in.

Re: Funday Sunday?

I got a handful of flights in. Big wing and 2 cam 6.5 (shameless plug: for sale, btw.) I think I set a PBR for light wind flight. Did have to pump like a monkey for a few moments but amply rewarded. If I'd been on normal kit, hardly a chance of getting going. It's a lot easier to pump a 6.5 than a 9.5.
