This coming weekend I am headed to Des Moines, IA (Saylorville Lake) for the annual Dam Jam regatta. This will be the first regatta I will race in this year so I am looking forward to it. I am borrowing an old Fanatic Mega Cat from Kevin at Windpower Windsurfing right now, and had a chance to sail it for the first time this afternoon. It went pretty well but it was a good idea to sail it before the race. It could use some touch-up on the nonskid near the middle of the board so that I don't slip around as much. It was also good to get used to way the mast track and centerboard work. It will be fun to sail a raceboard this weekend especially since Adam will also be on one too. He picked up a Superlight2 a few weeks ago and used it for the first time at Walleye last weekend.
Here are some pictures of the Mega Cat and Adam's Superlight2.
|Superlight2 on top of the Mega Cat. Notice the thicker nose of the Cat and thicker tail on the Superlight2|
|I fixed up the Cat on the right. The one on the left needs some repairs to the deck so went back in the Windpower shed for now.|
|Lots of longboards...|

All for now.
