Finally...First local session

Lake Erie Sherkston

In the water by 2 and was out after 6.30. Only came up for a quick sail change. At first it did not seem windy with no waves. 2 sailors were out. One (woman) came in complaining that she was overpowered, and the other (Dan) pulling off spinning tricks with a smallish sail near shore. Rigged up and hit the water with Jim. It did not take long for waves to size up. Took a ride way, way , out with Jim.

Nice sizable swell out there. Riding threw me too far down and could not make it back upwind, so got in on a beach, re-tuned my sail and all was good. Fun riding on the small waves at the shoal. About a dozen guys out, 7 or 8 of which were windsurfing and the others kiting.. Nice to see the scales tipping the other way sometimes
