Post Ian weekend Sept 30 Oct 1

Saturday looks really good in the afternoon with the winds increasing to 15-25+. I can't make it but wow. Winds from NW so EXPECT gusts. https://windsportatlanta.com/wiki/Northwest_Winds_in_North_Georgia

Sunday looks more sane 10-20 which I'll try to make.

Have fun, ladies and gentlemen!

Planning on kiting from Old Fed late afternoon. Haven't tried launching with wind in that direction yet though.

Wind direction works there, but unfortunately Old Fed is closed for the winter. Probably headed to VP

Re: Post Ian weekend Sept 30 Oct 1

We had a good session today Sunday at Galts. Randy was wind foiling, I was windsurfing and there were 3 other new sailers: 1 wing foil, 1 windsurf and 1 wind foiling. I don’t know their names but I believe they are part of the Facebook group and probably the club on this site too.

Also good session on Saturday, feeling happy with fall season wind conditions so far!!

Wind kicked in at llsc at 5:30. Got in a quick session but the setting sun made the outbound run a pain.

Did anyone kite VanPugh? If so, how did you launch?! Like, drift launch off the left of the left swim area?

Van Pugh was almost calm, so no one kited. Windy showed a dead spot at the Lake with wind to the East and West. Glad William got a session in by waiting until 5:30PM.

Sunday at Galts was fun, with 5 people on the water. I met Amit and was able to take few pictures with my drone of a WingFoiler ... Who ?
