Re: Marsh Park

Don Ledford

Looking at it I was almost thinking 6.0m2. But went with the 7.0 and needed it all. I had several long slogs during lulls, but it was a fun day. The white caps are deceptive since they're coming downwind. On the plus side the little swells were well formed and usable.

I made a long day of it - starting at 2 and quitting about 5:30.  The wind was light when Michal launched and I thought he would end up downwind at the next park, but he surprised me by being able to slog upwind. I don't think he ever got enough wind to foil, but did well  just holding his position on the beach in light wind.

My guess is OO-Denny might have had more wind?  It's possible the NW angle favored Marsh?

Let’s test that theory.  At OO Denny 2.37 rigging a 7.0 wing.

I suggested to Don to try Marsh Park first. As I was driving around in the last few weeks, it looked to me like the wind was better at Marsh Park/middle of the lake than OO Denny. I've seen a handful of wingers launching from Marsh and having being able to fly. If anyone has opposite observations, please share. 

I am going to try to come out today, too, and I might swing by OO Denny, since that is 5 min for me, but I am slightly leaning towards Marsh Park even though that is a (slightly) longer drive for me.

Oh, no OODenny?
I'll avoid the long drive and stick to SSP then. Maybe see you in the middle of the lake!

At Marsh Park. Whitecaps, but parking is tight
