I will be posting a new cat video. It's now up to the weather gods to stop this insanity.

Please, oh, please let the wind blow and my people go...

(I'm afraid that, secretly, Gene is enjoying all the videos.)

Scott Spreen and I on Formula boards, Chris Pyron on long board. Lit up all afternoon.

I never thought I'd cheer for Tweety Bird but...

Sorry William, but I prefer the cat videos. Since several of our group didn't consider yesterday to qualify as having any wind I beleive you should post a cat video for yesterday and one for today and then continue posting everyday till it blows. This will give those guys something to console themselves with for missing our epic Big Saturday.

But I win sailing endurance. You sailed a measly hour and change. I sailed 2.5 hours and if you divide my weight by sail size and compare to your weight by sail size you can see I sailed overpowered while you were sailing pretty underpowered. Plus, I don't use HGH.

BTW - my distance was also undermined by sailing a 110 liter board with my 9.0 part of the time.

For alll you guys the didn't make it, here is what our launch looked like. Notice those whitethigns on the water. They are called whitecaps. While perhaps not as interesting as a cat video, they do make for good sailing.

That sloth was me sitting at home waiting for the wind to pick up while you guys were breaking 20 kts. The Gainesville wind gage really sucks since it showed almost no wind, except around 3PM, when there was a passing band of rain on the radar.

You win sailing masochism... as for wing loading– I'm obviously doing more with less if I'm underpowered and averaging more speed. So THERE! :shock:

I actually have a witness to my speed runs. And photographic proof. And I'm not just in this for the beer.
