Bader Field, Atlantic City, NJ, USA - Oct. 9-11 2015

Postby GeoffS » Wed Oct 14, 2015 6:39 am

Fran Gramkowski and the east-coast blokart crowd hosted a great weekend of sailing at the closed Bader Field in Atlantic City.
Friday and Saturday the wind was in the upper teens and blowing across one of the runways, giving some serious power-reaching conditions.

Here's a video from the front-facing camera on my blokart for a couple of laps on Friday:

Here are two tracks from the weekend.
The first one is from Saturday with on clockwise and one counter-clockwise lap.
The second one is from late Sunday when the wind lightened and veered so it was almost directly along the north runway. You can actually see the wind slowly shifting right over the course of the three consecutive laps.

Saturday "power reaching":
