Thursday after Wednesday

Live report van pugh. 8-10 almost capping.
Waiting for a bit more as my sore arms don't want to rig a big sail

Re: Thursday after Wednesday

I plan to sail this afternoon at Van Pugh. Please let us know if the wind picks up.

Re: Thursday after Wednesday

Fun day - and two days in a row, getting decent wind for foiling BEFORE Gene left is a rare treat to be treasured!

And I have a pro tip from today for all up
& coming foilers - do not try to foil with your stab cover on. Simply put - doesn’t work too well.

PS: as a small token redemption of myself, I DID figure it out within 15min on the water and without coming off the water. OK, maybe it was only after the wind was pulling the sail off my hands and William and Gene were flying by while I was slogging on the water but still, it’s a plus 1 in my book (vs -10 for going in the water like that in the first place)..,😁

Re: Thursday after Wednesday

Maybe just the picture, but the fuselage doesn't appear aligned with the board center line.

Now I can't unsee it. Hamdi, we need to know the answer. Is it off-center or photographic illusion?

I have a photo like that of mine that looks off center too but when I mounted it to check, everything was centered.

I will have to check … or leave it be and blame all my foiling related shortcomings to my handicapped equipment? Now I don’t know which I am hoping the outcome will be - really misaligned or photo illusion? 😁

Naw, I think it's okay. btw, here's a nice clip of Hamdi's dog.
