It wasn't me but.... It's more higher rated modern wings that have issues when wet, increased stall speed etc. However lower rated wings will fly fine even if they have just come out of a lake, infact the best way to dry a wing is to fly it. Forward launching will be tricker but with a bit of wind r...
