Phil and Sara had never windsurfed before, but Sara had sailing experience. After the on-land instruction and some basic practice in the shallows, Sara caught on quickly and took off for the middle of the lake. I put the GoPro camera on Phil's boom and recorded what you can see below.
It was again pretty windy, so I took out my 7.0 rather than the 8.5. I couldn't get planing, but the chop, the inconsistent wind, and natural clumsiness dropped me in the water a bunch of times.
This is Bill vdB, sharing little vignettes of windsurfing on Sayers Lake, in Howard PA. and sometimes elsewhere.
