Hope you guys have a blast! I moved from Burlington to Dallas last fall and miss sailing on Lake Champlain. I lived on Shore Rd and sailed out of the neighborhood beach association next to Leddy Par ...

Looks fun! I just moved to the Dallas area from Burlington VT. But I'm currently staying with my wife's family in Clear Lake while we wait to close on our house in McKinney.

I sailed at mud lak ...

I use an old mistral superlight and a 10 year old rig. It's great fun but it definitely has a longer learning curve than a modern setup.

I took a lesson this spring with the goal of learning to ...

Where are you located? There was a very similar package for sale on Craigslist near Burlington, VT. If you are in the area, WND&WVS offers lessons.

It's a beautiful day out, so enjoy! Sand Bar is probably your best bet. I only sail out of Leddy park, since it's next to my house but it's only good in south wind or west wind.

Craig gave good advice on page 2 of this thread. 460 could be a good mast for you but it depends on how windy it is when and where you sail. Look up the average wind statistics for your launch on iw ...

- Mistral Windsurfing Sail - skip, too old
- Pacific VMax 7.9 sq meter - skip, your mast is too small
- Quantum Wi ...

You have a good mast. It's 460cm, so it will fit most sails between 6.0 and 8.0. Make sure the mast / luff length printed on the sail is between 460 and 460 + your mast extension. You can also use ...

Look at the sail calculator on James' blog for an idea of what sail sizes to use.
