Re: This weekend Dec 21/22 - low pressure

I would like to give it a go Sat, especially if anyone else is up for it? For Sat, 9am to 1pm seem better wind as of now. Probably Vanns but open to other. Anyone up for it?

Sun-Mon is higher winds (gusts too high?) but i am out of town, skiing in UT.

I might go Saturday around lunchtime.
Either launch is ok with me but If no one calls it I will go to Vanns

If the forecast holds, I will aim to be on the water at Vanns y around 11am. Trying to balance temp vs wind, seems wind might be too light after 1-2pm?

Well, either this is a forecast for gusty wind or someone's cat kept jumping up on the table while the computer was cranking out the forecast this morning

Apparently, the cat has been restrained.

Re: This weekend Dec 21/22 - low pressure

Meanwhile, Seattle is still on the map as far as I can tell and survived the bad weather discussed elsewhere. However, they did have to suffer through the gloomiest day in recorded history. That's quite an achievement considering how gloomy Seattle is in general.

There is no off season.
