OldMan from the sea

Hello all,
Been living here for the past 20+ years, came from Florida by way of Texas.
Love the water, just been busy raising a family and the such wonders of life.
Anyways, had an old Bic given to me a few years back for doing some work, picked up an old racing sloop and H16 in some trading.
Well, new guy on forum, old man from the east coast, so so wind rider, too old for fancy tricks, but can at least hoist a sail and ride the water.
Have 4 kids who want to learn the tricks of the board and sailing too, great for me.
Live in Clinton and will be heading to Willard tomorrow after the kids get out of school.

I don't have a solid plan, but was hoping to get up to Willard Saturday or Sunday if Craig's prediction holds... Have never kited there being a few months new here myself, but scoped out the North Park a couple of months ago - bet more fun launching your windsurf rig there than a kite! Please post onsite if you go.
