J80 casual race

Fun evening on the soon to be renamed J80 "5200 Love Explosion." Gusty winds ranging from around 16 to near 30 at times.  Since no other J80s were out, we went without the chute. Still great fun.

The forecast was for light winds from the southeast, but once we got out on the lake, the wind shifted around suddenly to the north. And with it came the hail...

Early Morning Cruise

Our nephew and his girlfriend were passing through town and made time to spend a night and go for an early morning sail. Very nice visit. Great to catch up.
