Formula Session

The breeze filled in this afternoon so I took my formula gear for a spin. 11.0 Reflex2, HWR, and Finworks 70LT. South wind so it was setup nice for windward leeward up and down the lake. I started off the beach downwind (north) to Deadwood Point by the kiters. Then I turned south and beat up to the lighthouse at the foot of the lake (hence, Fond du Lac). I rounded a channel marker by the marina and went north all the way back to Deadwood. Talked with Kevin and then headed upwind home to call it a day. 21 miles in all. GPS track.

Formula at Nationals

Here are a couple photos that my brother took during Formula racing on Friday. I jumped into the last 2 formula races since Open fleet was done for the day. 11.0 Reflex2, Starboard HWR, and Finworks Lassila 70LT fin.
