2017 GA Vapor 7.9, 2015 iSonic 107, MFC KPR360. Wind: 15 G 17 knots
Taty returned from Holland yesterday and delivered my 'new to me' Vapor 6.4 sail . Almost a full quiver now, get the Vapor 5.6 in February. Taty also picked up a GW-60 for himself and Amado so the new team members are fully instrumented now . Got a chuckle out of Taty about the GW-60. I had sent him a message telling him what firmware he needed, which version of the download utility to use, a useful configuration setting, etc. He handed me his GW-60 and said "fix it", .
Today was a marginal exercise day. Wind was good enough to get on a plane easily and be well powered on the reaches, but I was just physically dragging. 2 km at a time was about all I could deal with.
Taty, Amado, and Aron spent the afternoon foiling. Aron wore his GT-31 so hopefully will see a posting from him. Last year at around this time, with relatively light winds, all three would have been on freestyle gear - apparently foiling can be addictive .
