Washoe Lake, NV, US

Wind came late and from WNW and lake was a bit rough for max. speed, so I was concentrating on Nautical Mile, got 36.9 max in the end when wind started to go down and changing to WSW. The best session at Washoe this year and might be the last, my Select fin almost lost all finish coating in just two short sessions.

Loft RB 7 RRD 112 BP R37.5

Lightwind day so out with the big gear. Getting the RRD ready for Windfoil duties so oner last sail before it becomes a flying machine. Not super windy so a nic cruisey day to get some distance and do an hour. Put on the heart rate monitor to check the old ticker. 150 bpm for 1.25 hours, pretty good workout at 90% of max heart rate.

Dang, iWindsurf numbers were just enough lighter than yesterday to make me wish I had stayed for one more day. I need a couple of days of lighter, steadier wind to nail down some technique. 

Glad you had fun and kept your ticker pumping Smile

Roo, thanks for posting your tracks! The tracks lead me, of course, to some questions on jibing. Obviously, on the Waterfront Park side of the river you are doing laydown (or modified laydown) jibes (I say obviously because I've watched you do them). But your jibe tracks are different on the Washington side. Are the jibes still a form of laydown jibe or are you doing the 'sail along the swell crest and jibe the swell face' that we talked about on the beach. If it is the 'swell crest' what technique do you use for depowering the sail and when do you flip the sail? Thank you!

Jibing in swells on WA side so much tighter radius and no laydown like OR side. Essentially start from trough, turn up into face onto peak, hard turn down the face, surf the wave, sail goes neutral, flip the rig and then the feet strap to strap.

Roo, perfect description. Part of what I was failing to do was the 'turn up the face' so I would start with too much power/speed on the crest of the swell, come down the face with still too much speed/power and overrun the next swell. Thanks!

Barton, depending on the swell, running over the next swell can sometimes also work. Here in Kalmus in S-SSE and 30 mph wind, that can be the way to jibe on port. But just running up the next wave without enough speed or power to make it over it will bring you to a dead stop. Since you have Roo, just follow him around and copy what he does Smile.

Denis, nice mile! 18 knots for the hour by you and Roo is not too shabby, either. #8 of 35 teams for the (young) month, sweet!

Peter, eventually I hope to be competent enough to follow Roo around and see what he does... For now, after one reach I would be too far behind him to see what he is doing Laughing. On the Oregon side I can see what he does from the beach but I can't see the Washington side, and the 'water states' are very different in the two locations.
