I'm looking at Purgatory. Swim across the cove and walk to the point. NE wind in the 6.9 range.


I was born in a cross-fire hurricane

Awesome day. Rich and I swam across the glassy cove and walked to the point. A turtle sitting on stump in the water was like, "They're, not...they're not coming over here, are they? - who does that??! - SOB!" And he jumped into the water. The NE - NNE wind just hit the point at the top of the cove for an easy beach-start. I sailed my 6.9 with 108L We(Rick, Rich and me) sailed for a solid 3 1/2 hours.

Rick set the Clinton Lake down-winder record. He launched his windsurf board at the The Road launch, and reach after reach, made his way all the way to the dam. And then, up wind leg after up wind leg, made his way all the way back to The Road launch.
