This was a great, breezy day, despite the forecast consensus of no more than 8 mph all day. Susan B. showed up with her support team (husband). She had dabbled in windsurfing for 10 years before taking her first lesson from me. Now she has her own gear.
This session, I, on my shortboard, was unable to catch her, on her Mistral Prodigy longboard, even though I was using my 8.1 m^2 sail and she just had a 4.9. But then a gust came along and I left her behind (for the moment).
