Monday 5/16

Assuming that's actually wind and not just rain. Going on the afternoon.

Ok day with the FG7.0m.
The wind tried to get right as the day cooled but did not quite get organized.
I had fun and learned some new things that I had forgotten like check sail rotation before going out on the water.
Missed downhaul by 2 cm too short and outhaul 4 cm too long. Once this was remedied things went much better.
It is nice to be out of the neoprene.

Re: Monday 5/16

Today was the day I dream about on all those cold days in January when I can't feel my fingers or toes. Warm water, good breeze, lots of sunshine.

I had a good time and I'll probably sleep in tomorrow morning as I'm worn. Joined by Barrett, Alan, Gene, Chrises Pyron and Voith, Hamdi, Langdon, Roland, Richard with a supporting cast of sailboats on the lake. Robert B and Jim Crooks stopped by as well.

Thanks to everyone for the good vibes on the beach and the water and a shout out to my lovely wife who was patient as I made a late dinner. btw, Langdon is absolutely sticking his jibes and Gene and Chris V both were oh so close today. The water was quite flat for the 20ish mph gusts which made bending into the curves fun.

You mean Gene got a ride today? Huh, must have been after I left. πŸ˜€
Way to go Langdon!

Wow, you guys scored! Sorry I missed that one.
Things are going pretty well in Vero. I have been out each day since arriving. But the swell has been small and the wind just ok. Hoping to use the smaller gear on some larger swells but for now just happy to be flying.

Re: Monday 5/16

All,
I've finally uploaded photos and video's for Monday to my OneDrive.
Robert's Onedrive

Just some info. If you have a pic of video you don't want shared, let me know and I can remove it.
Also if you want a copy, feel free to download a copy for yourself.
If you need a higher quality, unedited video or picture, let me know and we can arrange that. I usually crop or edit them down to a better size for the web.

I will probably just keep a couple of months online at a time due to size limits, so again feel free to download what you wish.
Enjoy.
Robert

Hey Robert

The videos and photos looked great.
I used a couple of them in a video I made and we posted here and on FB, I hope you don’t mind but I can take them down and re edit it if needed.

Alan
