Beyond Possible!

I’d thought I’d run the best winds last week, but I was wrong!
I’m not sure if I’ve ever raced like this ever before. It would have been the ideal day to run the Regatta-Race coming up. I’m certain now that the last few weeks of February and the month of March promise to be the Season for ‘Urban-Surfing, Wind-Scootering’.

The high-velocity, the steadiness as well as the occasional gusts, provided ideal conditions to develop special new skills of maneuver, a chance at practicing all kinds of movements, and even the unique chance to practice, of all things, ‘slow-glide’ (i.e. without sail, or with sail to manage deceleration and control. My only regret is that video was lacking so I couldn’t observe and critique the behavior and operation performance.

Another Boston Herald photographer was eager to get my photo, but I had to tell him that Tuesday I had already appeared in the paper. LOL! Still, he was interested and said he’d check here in my blog sometime. Not a few people, as well, had seen the picture in the paper and were glad to give a ‘thumbs-up’ again to the Scooter-Sailing-Dude.
