01/05/07 South Wind?

Looks like there is going to be a strong South wind tomorrow. Anyone up for some time on the lake? I guess Vann's would be the place or Athens Park?

Please post and let me know.

I'll be keeping an eye on it, but I'm not too optimistic. South winds almost never seem to amount to anything. Plus, there is the rain to deal with. Vann's probably would be the call.

Looks pretty impressive. Tuesday and Wed may blow too.

What's the consensus? Is the wind going to materialize or not? Hard to believe it wouldn't blow a bit with all of these forecasts.

Any reports from on-site?

This ALMOST Live Update brought to you by WINDSENSE -

Van Pugh at 10:30, some caps in the gusts, but not too many. Jon Nye is on a 6.3, planing some in the gusts and then slogging. Right now I MAY could make my 7.0 and 142 liter board work but I'm going to wait until around noon, unless it comes up strong. Wind is west, tempt is 48 degrees.

Good day, who's up for tomorrow?

16:53 W 14 G 23
15:53 W 17 G 29
14:53 NW 17 G 26
13:53 W 22 G 33
12:53 W 17 G 29

Good crowd for a cold weekday, around 50 degrees. I sailed a 5.8, some sailors were alittle bigger, some were a little smaller.
