Anyone heading up in the next week (or 2 months) that I could score a ride with?

I'd love to check it out.

Happy to chip in for gas.

Thanks,
Andrew

Day 17 - Steady SW 18-20 on 12m + surfboard. Went strapless for almost 2 hrs working on tacks ... not even close ... spent plenty of time body dragging for my board. Might be worthwhile to watch some instructional videos this evening.

Nice session on a 5.8 and great to see Rob Mulder on his Melges 24 racing

Too hot in the city made for rough sailing in Squamish. It was a strangely warm wind that liked to change directions and strength every few minutes over a Nexen. Ended up squeaking out 1.5 hours of underpowered riding.

Even still the combo of warm air and warm water made it quite pleasant though.

Saw my first Wing Surfer in the wild as well as an EFoil for the first time.

Squampton Spit Monday review: woo hoo!

Decent. As C36 would say, it was "wall to wall" filled in. Around 25 knots. Perfect for a 4.7. Smooth water upwind at the Wall.

PS. Partly sunny. Warm. Come on out!
