Here is some footage a buddy of mine shot on our local lake 09/10/17 the day before Irma. I agreed to edit the footage as I just worked out how to get the GPS telemetry speedometer overlay on the video. Quite an eye opener. Yes, I know there's a typo in it ??!?@#$@#$

Enjoy

I sailed on Oak Hollow for years. We always said if you can sail there you can sail anywhere. It is small and cut up so the wind direction can change 90 deg. in just a short distance. Nice video.

Heck, the wind direction there can and does change 180 degrees, often in an instant with no warning. It's a very challenging place to sail.

Thanks Howard. We lovingly call the shifts on Oak Hollow hammer gusts, Frankenstein puffs, rogue shifts and a lot of other things, but it will make you a better sailor. Come on by and say hello sometime. You can find our schedule here:
