Hopeful for Sunday (Dec. 19)

Saturday's forecast looks rainy with marginal wind from the S/SW, so I'm hopeful NW wind will pick up after the front passes on Sunday.

I was thinking of trying Sunday afternoon. NW= VP I assume. Looks like after lunch might be best but share thoughts. Roland was thinking of going too.

In. Good

Temps be dropping as the day goes by but we should get a decent breeze as the day progresses and it should lay down nicely (I hope) around 4ish. I wouldn't be surprised to see some 12-18 for a bit. Nice that it's winter so you can roll up to VP at 3 and not worry about a parking spot.

I plan to arrive around 2PM when the NWS forecasts wind to pick up. All models show a dead zone East of the Lake, so it's an iffy forecast.

Live report. Wind sw. Caps out in the channel. Looks like an awesome afternoon.

Traffic was a b*tch though.

Etch-a-Sketch kind of day. 5.4 on Foil. Barret was on 8.5/fin and pretty well lit. Tony and Roland winged on 7s and Haizar shook the cobwebs out of a new to him Ezzy. Nice 12-20+ kind of day.

Gene elected to go to Old Fed so the rest of us rigged down a size as soon as he left. Biggrin (Just kidding)

William gave a good report. My additional comment is that conditions exceeded the forecast. I stuffed my iPhone in my wetsuit and was surprised to have a top speed of 26.7mph, and warm enough to not need a hood or mittens.

…And William was impressively nailing those foiling jibes.

Someone got a video of you and Alejo (I presume was your partner in crime?) waiting for Gene to show up

Rogier, I think this is your Reedin? From the LLSailRats FB group and a very nice Lester Ross

Edit: Lester is now a member of our FB group and posted all the pics late last night: https://www.facebook.com/groups/windsportatlanta/posts/6647848211923827/ Sail Rats is a private group so a lot of you wouldn't have been able to see them.

It was a good day at Old Federal, foiled on 5.7 and smaller foil (Time Code 68.) Wind reading on beach was a gust of 18.2 mph and average of 15.
