Mark's WindLog for Friday November 30, 2018 , 2:00p - 3:00p

45th session in 2018
Sailed at Windy Point
Wind from the S (mph)
        Lulls: 5
        Average: 10
        Gusts: 15
Rated a 2 of 10

Board: Slingshot Wizard 125
Sail: 5.9 Severne Freek
Suit: O'Neil Psycho Tech 3/2

First foil attempt with my new setup was a fail. Not an easy uphaul and I can't keep it afloat when there is no forward board momentum or wind pressure in the sail (less than 10 mph). When there is some wind in the sail, I can shlog fine, but I can't helitack it since the board's nose will sink at low speed ( it was relatively easy on the 150 Wizard with wind). I would love to know the actual wind speed today. I made it back to the boat ramp with only a 50 yard swim. I was warned the board volume might be too low (BM, AM). There is definitely a wind minimum I will have pay attention to. I may also have to see if my old handheld windmeter still works until I can judge this better.
