NOAA: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 48. Northeast wind 10 to 13 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph.
It looks like NE 7.5+ conditions.
Yes, you can launch off The Corner. It has to be coming right down the pipe. The Road launch area is another option. Just east of The Road launch you'll find another tree clearing and path. No rocks to deal with like at The Corner.
Purgatory Cove is another option. Swim across the cove and walk up the north bank. The main pool has a longer reach and can handle shifts better.
Peninsula is another option if you find Purgatory cove too hairy. Park at the round-about and walk your gear down the paved road.(It has a wire to keep cars going down it).
Well, 5.7 was a wishful thinking. When I got on the water, even the 6.5 was underpowered. Rigged the 7.5 after fooling around a bit and fortunately figured out soon that the good wind is actually in the pipe and when it spills out in the wide open area past the corner it weakens significantly. Sailed up to where it narrows in front of the Corner launch and had a blast for the rest of the session. The reaches are short here , but I like it because it keeps me on edge and forces me to jibe or tack more- better practice and workout. By 3:30 I got exhausted and came in for good. The water is still warm, around 70 F probably, it felt nice compared to the cold air. Clinton rarely disappoints
