Saturday 3/20

Who’s planning on sailing on the first day of Spring?

Vanns??

I plan to sail in the morning on account of the east wind.

Sunday also looks good.. finally some weekend wind for us 9 to 5ers!

Re: Saturday 3/20

I am on the fence - I need to leave the lake by noon and that would mean starting air temps around 40F, which sounds ok for Jan -Feb but for a late March sailing? Will sleep on it and post in the am if I warm up to the idea 😃

I hope everyone has looked at the temps tomorrow morning. I'm going to opt for an afterlunch special - the one where I can feel my fingers and toes. Biggrin

Re: Saturday 3/20

I am guessing that the forecasters have missed by 5 degrees.
If I am wrong I will sit on the shore and throw things at the geese until it warms up

Wind on the weekend. I don't care about temperature. I will be at Vanns around lunch. Ed

Be careful with your aim of those stones- i don’t want to try to duck stones in addition to everything else I am worrying about out there 😃 I expect to be on the water 9:30 thru 11.

Every club needs at least one manly man - apparently we found ours! 😃

8:30 Vanns live - white caps, sunny, feels warmer than forecast. I suspect Langdon won’t have to hunt rocks, I shouldn’t have to worry about ducking rocks, and by noon Ed will likely sail in a bathing suit 😃

The forecasters have been off almost every single day on temps for several weeks now.
They are having trouble even 12 hrs out.

I might get to Vanns by 10.

FYI, I rigged 4.7 - in case you wonder, since my 4.7 & 5.7 look similar. For your snow shovel, if you want to try 3.7, it’s in my van - you can borrow

Live report at 10:15.
Lots of Whitecaps.
Wind is not solid though. Large patches of gusts moving across the lake.
Hamdi, Roiger and myself are here.
Hamdi is flying with something other than the 4. 7m. Maybe the 3.7m.
Roiger is putting up a 9m kite
