7.5 times

Thanks to a Bermuda high centered just off the southeastern US we have enjoyed more consistent windy days in June and beginning of July so far. Mostly SW pumped up by some thermal effect. Not a lot of wind but enough to get going on a 7.5. I know it sounds big but I'd stick to anything that gets me planing. Besides, I'm finally able to duck jibe this sail so it can't be that big :) I'm sure the South shore get's more breeze but I stick to West Meadow. I have been sailing most Saturdays and Sundays in June than any summer I can remember. July 4th was very good, yesterday OK. Maybe more today. Now looking forward to a strong frontal system...

A whole weekend sailing = happiness

Is there a better way to start a season of occasional windsurfing than 2 windy days in a row, with plenty of sunshine and on a weekend? West Meadow, Saturday 111L/7.5m2, Sunday 92L/5.8m2, Happiness. West Meadow 180 deg panorama; the toy on the right is mine :)
