August 13, 2012 New Fin

I got a new delta wing fin for speed and weeds.  I have only tried it once.  It will taking some getting used to.  You can’t put a lot of weight on it or you will spin out.  I am used to 51 cm race fins.

July 23, 2012 Lake Michigan session

First hour and a half stating a 1:36 was light non-planing conditions.  I tacked to the south past the burn.  I ran back.  The wind was building so running was tiring.  Then the wind died so I played in the water on the island with the boys and Dean and Char’s grandkids.  I noticed the wind pick up so I went out again.  And had 1.5 hours of planing and jiving.  Best session of the summer.  I am so sore!  My hands are raw.  Life is good!

I had a great sunset swim too.  Water was bathtub warm and air in mid 80’s at 10 pm.  See photos.

July 14, 2012 Sail with Owen

Great Original Windsurfer day.  I practiced power jibes around the buoy ball.  Wind built and I wanted to go get my high wing gear, but Owen wanted to play.  I sailed the Sunfish with Owen then played on the beach.

I went back out with the Original windsurfer and it was tool windy.  Would have been great for the 8.0.  I am hoping for Monday.  No stats.

July 12, 2012 One design fun!

I sailed my original windsurfer in 5 mph winds.  My boys and Shelly’s boys were in kayaks trying to run into me.  I was fun dodging them!
