Re: Wednesday afternoon

Viewing Wednesday night race with libations on the porch is my aprés windsporting plan. I'm planning to go there unless wind goes past 290º.
Gate = 1891

Re: Wednesday afternoon

I'll go if it blows and, if not, then there is always tomorrow. Forecast down graded to 5 to 10.

Re: Wednesday afternoon

Good evening on the water.
Roiger was kitefoiling (sometimes in ridiculously low wind ) with I think a 12m
AWGTiger did great with his second time out with the Starboard Phantom.
Gene was there verifying with an anemometer that Roiger was foiling in low wind.

Water still warm

Re: Wednesday afternoon

With my brand new wind meter, around 4:00, when Rogier was pumping up his kite, it was blowing 10 to 13, when he launched, it had dropped down a little bit to around 7 to 10, and he was able to foil away and go right up wind. The rest oif the time I was there it did stay in that range, from 7 to 13. And that does line up with what David W posted above.

It was a nice day and that Phanton board is a cool board.

Is it going to blow today, Thursday? The trees are moving around now, 10.30 am.
