September 12, 2012 Maple Grove Park Session in Montague

Wind was SSW at 10 to 20 mph so I decided to try out Maple Grove Park for the first time.  It always seems really windy from the south.  It is weedy and shallow at the launch, but deepens in the channel.  Shallow and weedy with sand bar on opposite side.

Used 8.0 and weed fin on Bic.  Great sail!  Speed across the channel and carve jibes in flat water on the east side just to the north of the shallows.  Rip back across and jibe in the weeds on the other side.  Once again no weed problems at all.

Time = 1:29

Distance = 14.7 miles

Ave. speed = 9.9 mph

Max speed = 23.1 mph

4:28 pm until sunset

September 8, 2012 White Lake at boat launch

I decided to try the boat launch at the end of White Lake Drive.  I have weed fin now.  The weed fin worked great!  The wind was NW at 15-18 mph.  I sailed through thick weed beds and didn’t even know they were there.  Never had to clean the fin once!  Great runs from NE to SW down the south shoreline.

No GPS

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.
