Thursday was predicted to have pretty good wind in the afternoon. When I arrived at 4:30pm it was pretty light. Most of the windsurfers were schloggin along and an occasional gust would come through and a few would pop up on plane. However one guy was out on a formula board with a 12.5 sail and he was planing...no problem. I was talking to Fred and said I draw the line at an 8.5 sail, I won't go larger! It wasn't 20 minutes later and Dino let me try his formula board and a 10.5 sail. It was cool, kind of like cruising in a station wagon. Gybing was interesting, foot placement didn't do much it was more about sail position, so that would take some getting used to. We sailed past sunset and called it quits at 6:30. Now I'm rethinking the whole 8.5 sail thing!
