Sunday 2 May

Postby Steve271 » Sat May 01, 2021 7:37 pm

Any advice on which forecast to pay attention to?
Free version says late wind, premium says early. (Not a morning person)

SW-WSW in Muskego, wind mostly 15-20 so far this morning, we are going out to play in back yard. NOAA says it should be that or a little more all afternoon.

Sheboygan will be the spot today

The SW forecast changes to SE at about 11am....hour or so earlier then I was expecting. Currently reading 14kn at the lighthouse...I am expecting that to bump up by the next reading

Well Steve, was an interesting wind day in Muskego area. Up and down all day. Before Bonnie joined me on the water I could get on foil and ride 75% of the time with my 7m wing, Bonnie went out 4m. Then after Bonnie got upwind ready to have fun, wind started to crank with gusts to 30. Bonnie went in survival mode riding defensively and then went back to boathouse. I followed her and helped secure her gear, and of course took her 4m out. Then wind went down, then up... So, an additional hour on 4m 50% on foil. 15 miles today after 20 yesterday, I'm done and NOW the wind is cranking again. Wierd day, but a keeper.

Big M was outstanding. Gusty but consistently workable.
Lit on 13.5m- exhausted after 4+ hour single session. Landed more jumps than I crashed today- always good when that happens :D some great elevator jumps in the gusts too.
Don you were right about how quickly it warms up. 72 degree water temp today- that’s 10 degrees more than yesterday. Stafford showed up in board shorts.
