Yes, very sad indeed.  Margaret was, for me, a part of the Outer Banks windsurfing experience.  I was sorry to see her close her shop and move away.  She was very professional in her business. I have heard her demonstrate a sail to a French Canadian in good French.  I always felt that she was honest and upright in her business dealings and helpful even if it didn't involve a sale.

The notice of her death suggests that she had to go to Belgium to find release from a terminal illness at the time she wanted to go.  I admire that kind of courage and am sorry that she had to go abroad to find the help she wanted.

I was out on a 7.5, which was overpowered briefly a couple of times but worked well about half the time. Too small during the lulls, of course.  The wind was better than the forecast.  A couple of other sailors were going out when I quit, one from out of town.

All went well.  John showed up with a new 160 L JP (almost formula board) and an 8? sail.  I couldn't decide on my formula and a 9.2 or my 7.6 and slalom board, so I combined the two and went with my 7.6 and the formula board.  Good choice, planing about 2/3 of the time and over powered a couple of times near the end.  Plenty of boats (and wakes) and the parking got very busy at around 12:30.  I wore a shorty, but didn't fall in.  Water was 65 and comfortable on the legs.

Tom was going out when I was de-rigging, I think he said he had a 7.? rigged.

 at the lake now. Still plenty of wind surf parking. Lots of white caps at least 10 to 20 at the moment.

Should be some wind Sunday, at least for mid to large size sails.  I am considering going, maybe on the early side.  I wonder what the Easter crowd is like a Jordan?  Anyone have experience?
