Thursday June 9

Hoping Thursday ends up being a good warm up for a foil race this weekend. Fingers crossed

Guaranteed to be a good afternoon. Just got summoned to some family stuff. Sad

Partly sunny and a few caps at old fed.

Spoke too soon, it fizzled to nothing.

Patience, grasshopper. Wait for me to start driving towards Hartsfield. Wind will kick in so I'll have to look at the flags the whole way. Wacko

VP report
It’s capping in the channel.
I got a picnic table and grill reserved.

Bummer you can’t make it William, I’ll post a jibe report.

Re: Thursday June 9

It was a decent day, Much better than yesterday. Neil was wingfoiling non stop on a 7m, swapped foil wings at some point and got really fast.
Gene, Barrett, Hamdi, Chris P, Langdon and myself windfoiled 6.7 - 8.0...not sure what size Pyron was on, maybe smaller.
Barrett, Z, Mike, Ed and Chris P windsurfed. 6.5 - 7.8 Chris V sailed to Van Pugh from LLSC on his Equipe.
Langdon was still out foiling when I left around 6.

Robert was there making moving pictures.
Sorry you missed it.

Re: Thursday June 9

As reported, it was a great day, blowing NW 20-25 mph from around 3 - 5PM.

It may have been Z's best day this year, so I snapped this photo of him on the water.

Hopefully Robert will post photos taken earlier in the day when we were foiling on bigger gear.

Re: Thursday June 9

I posted on the Facebook site, but just to follow up here, yesterday ended up being super fun. Started to kick in around 12:30. Maybe 9-13k, but kept ramping up from there. By the time 3:00pm arrived it was really solid. By 5:00 it was raging but a few of us had nothing left in the tank to give it another go. I was moving pretty slow last night!! Totally wiped out. Bummed about the update wind forecasted for the race. Who knows, maybe we’ll get lucky and something will appear.

Glad he got a good one. He's put up with some challenging days this spring with an amazing attitude. I'd have probably sold my gear if I were in his place a few of those times. (not really but they weren't easy days)

Re: Thursday June 9

Pictures and video's are up. I can report everyone was having fun, but some more than others.

Here is the link to make it easy --> OneDrive

Remember to download a copy of something if you want to keep it. I will probably only have enough space to keep a couple of months worth online.

Enjoy
Robert

Hi Robert,
I am only seeing the folders shown below - nothing for June. Am I missing something?

Sorry, Your right. This is June and I put them in May. I'll go back and create a new folder for June, but you'll still need to open the folders to get to the pictures.
