Monday 6/1 - east

Chance that tomorrow morning will be fruitful. The models are starting to suggest 10-15. Probably best times between 10am-1pm. As always this time of year, there's no guarantee.

Re: Monday 6/1 - east

I am watching this as well. I have meetings starting at 1. So, if forecast holds, looking at early start (on the water 9ish), likely at Vanns (shorter drive, enough to make a difference when tight on time).
This from Iwindsurf - Gene, almost a solid 5.2 forecast! 😉):

I'm easy. Whoever wants, needs company - I can probably sail from 10:30 on.

Confusing forecast- NOAA calling for the afternoon, everyone else the morning. I am going with everyone else and shooting for 9am at Vanns.

Vanns live: decent breeze, good gusts. Rigged 7.6 and large wing, think it will be a good am. Plenty of parking. Leaving by noon latest

Winds much stronger and steadier than it felt at the shore. After 2 runs to the channel, sheeted out and on the wing, Came in to switch to smaller sail

Re: Monday 6/1 - east

Great session this morning. Until about 9-9:30, wind felt on the high side even for the 6.4 but that's the smallest I have packed (where is that 5.2 when you need it!) but I hung in there, mostly on the wing and trying to keep in control by sheeting out and/or going upwind more than usual. Towards the end of my 2+hr session, William visited from VP. Great start to the week; hope we get more of these 'out of nowhere' pleasant surprises - and given the forecast, we need them.

Re: Monday 6/1 - east

Sweet day. As bad as the water was Saturday, it was like butter today. 15-20 at the start and then started to wind down towards noon. Barrett and Chris P joined me at Van Pugh. 24 odd miles

Re: Monday 6/1 - east

Was that today (Wednesday)? There were hints on the models of some wind mid-day and Langdon texted me that it looked breezy. Unfortunately, today wasn't workable.

Re: Monday 6/1 - east

Yeah It was up and down. A bit windier on the left side of old federal, maybe funneling into the cove. Good day for sailing but you didn’t miss anything.
