Instead we went to Florida for 2 weeks, where we hung out on the beach with some of Helen's kids and grandkids, and visited my niece Gloria who moved to Fl from VT, and spent an amazing day at Harry Potter World, and I took some lessons from my guru Andy Brandt (below).
In the first video I did two light-wind tacks, two different ways, on Andy Brandt's gear. In the still pic, Andy is holding the wing he was about to instruct me about. And the next (last) video [truly crappy, shot by Andy on his iPhone] shows me attempting to sail a windsurfer using said wing. Unfortunately, my GoPro camera went to the bottom of Tampa Bay about then, so I have no more decent action footage of windsports in Florida.
This is Bill vdB, sharing little vignettes of windsurfing on Sayers Lake, in Howard PA. and sometimes elsewhere.
