Siblings R. and S. came from Boston and New York to visit family in this area. When they heard about Better World Windsurfing lessons they decided to give it a try. They chose to have their fee sent to Doctors without Borders
I went for a short sail in the afternoon. The wind was erratic and not really enough for much planing, but I did get to see a juvenile bald eagle try for a fish and then sit on a snag on the levee.
I got home late after being at a reunion in the eastern part of the state. Looks like I missed most of the wind, but...
It was a seriously windy day, with whitecaps and rolling chop all over the lake. At one point I tried my 7.0 m^2 sail, but it was way too big. I planed clear across the lake hanging on for dear life and heading upwind to try to keep the speed down. A 6.2 was more appropriate, although I didn't get much planing. The wind was SOOO gusty.

I missed what I think was planable wind earlier in the day, but it was great to finally get out on the water again and just sail around.
I traveled with all my gear down to Hatteras for BABA's semiannual windsurfing sojourn. Although it was October, the air and water temperature was summer-like.
