No worries.  I probably would not have gone that day because it looked like no chance of safe sailing.  I did go camping with my son and mountain biked, kayaked and even windsurfed.  It was light but I got some sweet planning runs with my 8.0.  Was racing a kite foiler.  When planing I was faster.  The lake was so smooth.  No chop.  Can't wait to go on a windy day.  I will let you know if I go down again.  No wind in the forecast.

I apologize for not letting you know of our plans, Randy.  My only explanation is that I thought there was a good chance we would get skunked.  I even brought my mountain bike as a "plan B" if there was no wind.  Instead, I had to defer mountain biking till the following day, when I rode the Yankee Springs trail near to Gun Lake.  BTW, did you ever organize a Gun Lake get-together?  If you do, I would like to join in (and maybe include riding Yankee Springs either before or after sailing).

I know of at least 12 people who have windsurfed on Hamlin this summer, including USA 17.

Sounds like I missed the party!  I didn't even sail because of the storms and there was no wind in Whitehall.  Glad you got a good session in.  Didn't know anyone sailed Hamlin anymore.  Fun place to sail!
