The forecast lately

I'm not sure if this is the wind forecast or my hopes and dreams. Cray 2

Re: The forecast lately

Hmmm. Should make a great sail for foiling according to Robby Naish's video. He says you want a softer sail without many battens that has the center of effort aft with a longer boom.

Re: The forecast lately

Probably time to revive this thread. The next week looks great for anything that requires calm winds. Dash 1

Re: The forecast lately

Yeah - the Laser worked great today. It wasn't really wind but more like moving air. Of course, Gene and I are both self certified Laser Captains now and all weather sailing experts.

Re: The forecast lately

Might try this. CR looks like a better place to buy sailboats than windsurf gear.
