"Going to try again tomorrow. Winds should still be kicking strong. Where do you all launch at the park? Do you go to the left or the right of the slip?"

No Wind Day Maintenance On My Gear

Hey everyone,       Been pulling my hair out waiting for wind. Got bit by the sailing bug pretty bad and am anxious to keep going. I did get used gear, and figured I could tweak it up while I wait for the wind. Looking to see what you all have suggestions for rigging rope, and where to buy.       Also.......I want to regrip both my booms. I have seen a couple of kits on-line.....but want to see what you all suggest. It doesn't look like it would be something out of my capability, but I don't…See More

  I'm going out of town, probably until the 15th or 16 to visit family & friends, hopefully the fall breezes will kick in by then. I post weather opinions & sailing plans on the I.B.S.C.C. forum, generally Ramsey Creek in S & S/W, Blythe landing in N/W, Badin Lake in N/E.
