Saturday 3/18

I will be at Old Fed after lunch on Saturday desperately working on waterstarting so that one day I can sail at VP without worrying if the session is going to a one way trip to Aqualand

Re: Saturday 3/18

Because we love you and Old Federal is a pissy place to windsurf. Yes 3

I really like Sam Ross's version. Imprint his body position in your mind. Low with extended arms. Don't be in a rush to stand up.

Van Pugh, after lunch. Have to thank my colleague for the videos. Actually learned a couple things after all these years.

Best hint: when you fall, do it in shallow water at a nice resort in Spain, Greece or Red Sea and not 55 degree Lanier... Biggrin

I'm going to Old Federal after lunch but may end up at Van Pugh depending on the amount of wind.

@arrogantj - Good (but somehow not so arrogant.)

May your water be smooth and your winds be swift.

I had a good time. I really appreciated Chris P. helping me try to waterstart. Sailed from about 1:30 to closing time

Funny guy. Shame his health caught up with him.

Windfoil: Please see your doctor if you have elevations lasting for more than four hours.

ROFL

Chris is really getting it nailed. Chris and I rigged smaller 6.5 and 6.0 and had a blast in the flatter water all the way across.
