Tomorrow morning might be interesting :)
Rain should stay away until noon or 1pm and SW wind 15-30ish.
Looks like a Marina Morning for Me!

Yup, looks best to get out there early. I think most of the wind will be S-SSW at 190 degrees so the Marina looks like the spot. I should be able to sail my 4.7 maybe 4.2. See you out there.

Was a gusty day, 4.2 to 5.2 conditions. Reid, Rich, Sepi and I sailed from the Marina. I started with my 5.2 then rigged down to my 4.7. I could have sailed my 4.2 at times, I was spilling wind and tail walking during some of the gusts on my 4.7. The best rides of the day were early morning on my 5.2. I was getting blazing fast runs on the far side where the water was less choppy. The wind was challenging me to find just the right windspeed and steep piece of chop to get good jumps but I worked with it. Had a good time but the gusty conditions caused me to use less harness and more arms to maintain control so I'm feeling it harshly today. My apologies to Reid for my poor camera work, I was unable to capture his duck jybes and a nice jump on the far side. I tell you what, Reid makes capturing those images of us seem easy but its not! Dude has talent for sure, thanks Read! I was the first to leave, hope everyone got some good runs before the rain arrived. Capped the day off with a hamburger and beer at the Powerhouse Pub followed later by having a good dinner while watching the Blackhawks win. Perfect!

Sailed my 4.7 the whole time with 95 L. I think a guy could have made a 4.2 work if he stayed up at The Narrows. There were some isolated "Carlyle like" ramps out there to hit. Got out there around 8:45 am. Always neat to have the wind rippin' that early in the morning. Everybody got off the water and packed up around 2:00 just before the rain hit. Great to see everybody.
