a) When are you guys assembling a team of three?

b) Who they would be?

You should try to break the record at Lanier. Wonder if we get a wind handicap.

Edit: wtf is this "you guys" - if we do something, you are in even if we have to drag you screaming on it. Lol

a) Definitely not me... Paddleboarders pass me on windy days.

b) Leading contenders

if they aren't available

I'm open to other contenders/volunteers/suckers.

c) We are already looking at dates in late July/August. All we have to do is break 6 kts for the local record - handicap basis, of course. I think we have the wind equivalent of a 100 handicap in golf.

I think that riding that thing would be both fun and terrifying.

Somebody made a tandem in Oz out of an old RSX. Maybe we can refit an old longboard as a tandem.

What happens in a black hole stays in a black hole.

If the winds is up enough to set any records on Lanier you would need a chop handicap.
