Looks like the Marina with the S-SSW in the 6.9 range. Who's with me?

I'll be there!
Had a good after work session from the West side boat ramp today. 8.0 with the Formula and a nicely filled in SSE direction.

I got to the lake in the afternoon. Rich and Mike were out there ripping. As I'm rigging my 6.9 I see rain coming down the lake. The best wind was just before the rain hit for Rich and Mike. The wind slowly came back after the rain stoped. Not quite what it was before the rain. That's what SailFlow was trying to forecast on its maps. This was an exercise in what's the bare minimum of wind I can sail my 6.9 in. I had to up-haul at times. Other times I was able to get on plane and make full planing jibes. We all had fun.

Awesome looking board-the Volar. Im sure it’s a great performer as Goya boards usually are. Checked the translator, Volar means Fly in spanish. My socks are already shaking :ohmy:

Thanks Ady. Didn't know what Volar meant. Getting back into sailing after 10+ years away, I'm amazed at how good the new stuff is!
