Saturday


Saturday is shaping up to be quite a day, anyone in for some sandbanks action? Jeff and I are already planning on making a day of it. We need more people to come. I hope I haven't cursed the wind by making this post.

Re: Saturday


Got advice on the ontario forum that the gate at Sanbanks (beach not park) is closed. The best way to get to it is then to go to the trailer park (Lakeshore Lodge) and hike across the dune. The other option is Outlet beach to the south, but that usually has a ton of windsurfers in a good NW and the wind/waves can be better at the north beach (Sandbanks).

Plus if your up at sanbanks, you can hike across the dune kite in the air to a little flat water rip on west lake. Never done it, but should be easy enough. Especially if you hiked in from the trailer park, as its right on west lake.

Saturday Sandbanks---

I think I am going to Sandbanks...last year you could drive past the gate with four wheel drive..could be an option. Anyone have another small kite...my partner Julie had a breakthrough last week and is now upwind kiting...but I'm afraid it will be too windy for her on my 10. PS: she rarely crashes kites.

Re: Saturday


I will have at least a few kites in the car!

There will be a waroo 9m along but no bar for it. Pretty standard 4 line set up is all you need.

Not sure about sending out newbs on it, but it will be there so we can check it all out tomorrow.

Sorry Mike, Im full, but hope you get can get in with somebody.

Were going to hit it early and hope for a long day of wind. Some forecasts say windy early, some say more in the afternoon, we plan on trying for all of it.

The word is the parking lot at the Lakeshore lodge trailer park and hike across the dune to sandbanks.

See you there.

Re: Saturday


Okay all, I told a few people that I would post here to let you know where we would head tomorrow. Unfortunately we'll have to let the conditions in the a.m. decide that. But safe to say we'll either be at outlet or sandbanks. Profound eh? Just head to either beach and watch for kiters I guess. If my phone has service feel free to call. 613 542 8275. We're heading up bright and stinking early to catch all of the day that we can. Hope to see everyone there.
