Post Hurricane Sandy, I know this is anticlimactic, but I'm just getting around to video I shot on the BABA trip to Hatteras a couple of weeks ago. This clip (just under 12 minutes) is from all the Clew-View GoPro footage from October 8, concentrating exclusively on sailors other than myself (even though I'm in the foreground throughout).

Sweet "Indian Summer" Session
Nice breeze (sub-planing) and warm Sun and air (74F) today. Sailed for 45 minutes; it was good to get on the water again, first time since Hatteras, although I believe Anna S. sailed this past weekend. Shorty wetsuit was too warm in the air, but did not prevent an occasional brisk wakeup in the water. As I type this the wind seems to have picked up to planable levels; no matter, it was a beautiful day.
The two videos below show a) 2 1/2 minutes of yours truly sailing on a medium-wind day, as seen by two different cameras recording at the sane time [the small, white kite in the foreground was being flown by fellow BABA member Albert P.], and b) about 3 minutes of a lesson I gave Helen D. during which she had a breakthrough realization and had "the most enjoyable windsurfing experience yet".
This is Bill vdB, sharing little vignettes of windsurfing on Sayers Lake, in Howard PA. and sometimes elsewhere.
