Re: Heavy winds?

check pressure density altitude and the temp relationship and the lift you get under the wing? Is a sail a wing on its side? Yes you are at the same alt unless the lake level is lower but small drops will not mean much. Alt may only come into play if you sail a lake at high alt vs ocean sea level Regards , Lou
