Wed 3/09 NW

Moderate temps (60ish) and NW direction. Maybe not as much weirdness as we've had the last few days.

VP in the afternoon is my vote.

How was it? Lake WW wasn't enough for me.

Chris P and I showed up at VP around 2:30. Gene supposedly went to Old Fed.

Wind was light at first but continued to strengthen. By late afternoon it felt like the upper teens at least. Did a lake tour from the Islands to Old Fed and back. Breeze was plenty filled in so getting upwind was no problem.

Chris P is looking real comfortable on the foil these days - happy for him.

26.4 miles in a couple of hours. Foil has really changed the way we see even a big lake like Lanier. It used to be a real task shooting the Aqualand gap and now it's no big deal. The distance between Van Pugh and the island at the top of Aqualand now feels quite small.

Used to do a bit of this in the Formula days but the wind range was substantially narrower, for me anyway.

Small Lakes too. Getting out from the boat ramp at Juliette was much easier and faster on foil. I can’t wait til the next SW day to go back to do some more long reaches to the cooling towers.
I think Jon D might be close to converting too.

Converting or being replaced.......?
