Misplaced in Google Earth - The position that indicates the location of Cuesta del Viento is misplaced, the correct lat/long is:
30°10'52.00"S
69° 5'2.52"O

conditions for speed - How are the conditions for speed on the lake?

Obviously the wind is strong enough

But is there any place where the water is flat enough?
If the wind direction is mostly north, can you blast under the north shore of the lake? Is the land north of the lake steep, or is it flat?
