Next available flight

Trying to plan my week ahead and where to go.
Juliette is a bit warmer but I'd rather sail with others so Is anyone else considering Tuesday ?

Too cold for me on Lanier if the forecast stays the same.
If it was a weekend I would join you on Juliette or WP

Two weeks ago I'm wearing a shortie. Now I have to wear a dry suit?

Maybe TODAY, Monday, afternoon, not as much wind but a lot warmer. If it happens, I'll head to Old Fed, TODAY.

Still a maybe for Tuesday.

Gene.

At 42F, I don't want to sail alone, but if Gene mans up, I'm likely to head to Van Pugh Tuesday afternoon. At least the water's still warm.

Today was warm and true to forecast. Foiled a solid hour and then it shut down. Just turned off. Being SW, when it happened, I wasn't anywhere near shore.
Amazing up until then. 8-14

Veep (Van Pugh). Was going to the lake house but made a detour just in case. Worth it. First time on the water in over two weeks. Too long, my friend. Too long. It was a marginal webguy type of day. Not sure most people would have dug it.

Re: Next available flight

Interesting. To me the forecasts today looked pretty weak. Nothing above 8 mph on the "Superforecast"* (Windfinder) - usually the most optimistic. As they say, it has predicted 9 of the last 5 windy days. True - it showed gusts to 16, but I tend to discount those if the base isn't at least 10. 6-16 or even 8-16 don't seem credible to me most of the time, particularly if they are showing it from the west, or worse (wsw, sw, or worse). Now if it is from the east, different story. Then I'm inclined to believe it.

*GFS I think.

There is no off season.

Nope
I need at least 11 7/8 mph to dig it.
