Westport calling...


Tomorrow morning is looking pretty good up this way. Wind direction should be perfect for tacking back and forth between Forresters Landing and Westport.

Re: Westport calling...


hey Rob, i'm tempted to make the trek, i might see you on the lake in the morning. I haven't tried Upper Rideau yet but i'm going through kite withdrawal.

That would be awesome! I'm just pouring myself a cup of coffee and heading over to Forresters Landing. I'll be there around 9

Yeah, I checked it out early this morning - good snow cover, no wind.

Might be better somewhere other than Forrester's with a clean south fetch but even then trees weren't moving.

Indeed. Mike and I rode a little in the Westport Harbour - snow was great but the wind wasn't. We managed a few tacks but nothing exciting. emoticon

Re: Westport calling...


on the bright side, lots of practice re-launching in super-light wind !
Thanks Rob for showing me around Upper Rideau, will definitely make the trek more often. Nice spot.

Re: Westport calling...


And that practice paid off this afternoon! Ken came up this morning for a light wind session... and it was light - 7 'knotish'. Anyway, after making the journey north, guess who forgot his harness? I got to fly his 19M Flysurfer for an hour! Oh baby, that thing is nice! I followed that up with a quick unhooked blast with the ol' 10.5M Blade. My legs are toast. But if ever Ken offers you a go with that FS, swallow hard, have no fear, and give it a go - a totally amazing kite! Thanks Ken for the perma-grin.

A nice east wind is starting to come in in advance of this storm we're supposed to get. I'll head over to Forresters Landing around lunchtime if anyone feels like heading out today. Should be great for a little downwinder to Westport.

Boy, we got a fresh dump of new snow up here! When the wind comes up, you know where to find me!

Rob - what say you for afternoon flying Friday? Wind is forecast 20-30 km out of north - how's that for Upper Rideau Lake? Is snow too deep / wet do you think?
