Wednesday morning


if one believes the forecasts for tomorrow, the wind might turn north later in the day, but I don't have time for a sandbanks run. I might try for a sunrise session at the docks, if it isn't pouring.

Re: Wednesday morning


I'll consider that, what time would you hit it Mike?

Re: Wednesday morning


It will likely be pissing all morning, but you may get a quick dry period.

Sandbanks would be the better bet, but it will be f-ing windy there, gusts hitting the 40 mph range.

There will be a bunch of other good days coming up

Re: Wednesday morning


Hey Ken, I'm going to aim for 7:15. If it's good I'm kiting. If not at least I'll be at work nice and early

Re: Wednesday morning


got there at 7:15, not a drop of rain, the air was warm, the sun was rising. All that was missing was wind ..... sigh ..... 12-13 knots isn't enough to make me show up late for work.

If it picks up during the day and isn't raining cats and dogs, I'll head down. Post if you're going to the docks.

Re: Wednesday morning


I was just down at the docks, it looked a little too crazy to be riding with a 2mm wetsuit and no proper life jacket out there alone. That and the combined guilt of skipping more work..
I will probably check it out again at 3:30ish.

Re: Wednesday morning


I rode for 20 minutes at 11:15, it was sketchy at best. Super gusty and all over the place within 200 m of shore. Was ok on a 9m when far away from shore. Brent went out when I came in and managed a bit better.
It looks like it is turning north now.
