Let's talk Saturday

Lots of very SW wind in front of a cold front and line of showers. Different models have the rain coming in from 1 to 5 pm. Temps from 60-65.

Hartwell has come up in conversation but not sure if there's enough of a gap to the rain to make it worth the extra hour's drive.

I do not think there is. Earlier forecasts had Lanier with a 10g40 (not too enjoyable for me) but now it's starting to look like maybe 10g22.
I will probably just stay local. Maybe OF, maybe Vanns unless there is a better suggestion.

This is kind of how I feel about Saturday:

What happens in a black hole stays in a black hole.

Re: Let's talk Saturday

Love those big budget music videos Good Catchy tune !
May be a sailing club kind of day– catch a few rides and retreat to the porch to watch the weather come in?
Warm, humid and breezy always gives me an unsettled feeling. Throw in a low level jet stream and it's tornado weather. Shok

I, too, get uneasy when I see that set up, especially in spring. More than once, enjoyed a nice, warm SW day only to read afterwards that somebody in AL got absolutely boxed by a tornado.

At LLSC, gate was open. Pretty calm at the moment- a capable and adventurous light weight with a large sail might make the foil work but I am none of those things or have a large sail at the moment.

Re: Let's talk Saturday

Me too. 4.7 was a little small for the conditions at times - 5.7 would have been better given how the day unfolded- but all in all, I did ok. Missed pretty much everyone at the shore other than Barrett briefly but my timing went well otherwise - got home just as the rain was picking up.

Thanks again for the invite Chris - always a great time at LLSC,

Re: Let's talk Saturday

A BIG thanks to Chris for inviting us to the Sailing Club where the SW wind was on-shore.

I arrived at the right time to have major fun windsurfing with a 7.0m sail & 120L board. This was a 70ºF morning in mid December!!! The clouds even parted to reveal pure sunshine ! Most of us came ashore in time to stow gear before a strong gust front brought pounding rain.

Photos taken at the end of a great session.

Wish I had been wrong this time. Sad
