Galts Report 8/6

The forecast was only for NE 5-10, but it was a very steady 15 from about 10 till 1 at Galts.  I have certainly noticed the NE wind at Galts is usually much more steady than a typical W or NW wind on any other lake  I stayed fulling planing on 7.0 sail for two straight hours until it started to taper off around noon -- too bad nobody else was there  :'(

Re: Galts Report 8/6

Wow,

Guess I'll have to go back to Galts!!  It was say 10ish plus or minus at Tidwell.  Planing was hit or miss on my 8.5 and wide board, but a fun day!    

Thanks for the report.  I may try to go to Galts on Sat if conditions look similar.  It's interesting that PDK (nearest where I live) was reporting variable at 6-7 mph.  Maybe this is the bowl effect (the dome effect in reverse, hot water "boiling up" to the wind.)

Re: Galts Report 8/6

It was 8-12 till 3 pm at Vanns.  What'd you guys have at Galts?

Where were the usually Lanier suspects? There were just 3-4 of us out there today.  It was nice wide board kind of day.  Planed down to Van Pugh to check out the BareFoot regatta.  Back upwind to watch the Thistles at LLSC.  Wind started to fade so I didn't make it up to Sunrise (probably would've tried if I didn't need to be off the water by 3:30).

Re: Galts Report 8/6

Based on your report, Galts was probably about the same on Sat, as Vann's Tavern.  I left around 3, when it seemed to have dropped off.  There were 4 of us there, few boats and some good gusts from noon on.
