Destination 10/30

So where are we all going tomorrow (Saturday)? BIG south wind. I may just watch if the forecast is accurate. Bradford or Sheboygan look like the two best options. I'd go either place. Bradford might have 2 - 3 mph less wind, which would not be a bad thing. Gusting to 40 is tough to deal with. Gotta watch out for each other while we're there.

If the wind has enough south in it (as forecasted) then I’m gonna be at Bradford, probably around Noon as it’s a little warmer later in the day. Got replacement lines from Stafford today!

Yeah, Bradford unless it goes offshore. Sheboygan is great, but too far when the wind is the same here.

and Sheboygan could be too much wind for my smallest kite!

On my way back from OBX where we got past 2 days of Zeta remnants, winds 30-50 knots pretty much constantly. Going to take me a few days before I engage in those winds again, 6m kite, 3.4m sail and 3m wing, sore everywhere with about 6 hours both days on the water. Boardshorts first day of that wind, but then temps dropped.
