Watching Friday/Saturday Forecast 11/12-11/13

Looks like Friday & Saturday may be shaping up. Rich Ganet & I are trying to figure some free time to hit it one or maybe both days if forecast holds up.

I am planning to go Friday and will follow the windsurfing crowd. Mostly practicing fast taking and get my footwork down to muscle memory.

I am planning on going to Mary Alice Park ("MAP") around lunch time. Winds from the South direction are typically not all that reliable. That said, it's an easy place to sail (side shore, flat water) and close for me which is why I like it for south type winds. If the wind turns to SW if doesn't work, but Little Ridge is a short drive from MAP.

At Vanns. Not much wind and clouds to the west don't look happy. I think I'll opt for yard work

Thanks Randy, and sorry I ended up not going as I decided to catch up all my work today so I have more time tomorrow at the lake.

Hope to see you tomorrow

You chose wisely. Not a lot of wind, and erratic direction. Tomorrows forecast has dropped a bit but still may work, just FYI.

Morning
11Alive News actually talked about the Wind increasing on Saturday 10-15mph, with 20mph gusts. Always nice when the general news mentions it will be windy. Temps are suppose to drop but I guess that’s par for the course for the Fall season. Rich Ganet might want to Kite so we were thinking Old Fed on Saturday. But open to change. Hope to see you all.

If wind lives up to the forecast I will go upwind to VP for a while and the downwind it back .
