Michael, age 70, and his grandson Jonah, age 12, took a windsurfing lesson this past Monday. Jonah caught on so quickly that I failed to properly instruct him in how to beat upwind and in what to do when getting blown downwind. Nevertheless he learned a lot and says he wants to come back for more. In the video below, we see Grandpa Michael ceasing to drift downwind by getting the board pointed across the wind and sheeting in.
This is Bill vdB, sharing little vignettes of windsurfing on Sayers Lake, in Howard PA. and sometimes elsewhere.
