Anyone thinking about sailing Furry Creek tomorrow morning? I'm considering trying it out for the first time

Furry Creek should be good this morning for those who can make it. Should be around 30 knots and 14 degrees. Pam Rocks sensor is gusting to 38 knots. Enjoy.

I might give it a try. How's the wind shadow for an 85l board? I assume launch from the Dive site at the North end of beach drive?

Nexen outflow. What a waste of wind

I checked it out Saturday around 1pm and the wind shadow was pretty far out with the wind coming from a more NE direction.

Kept driving down father and launched from porteau cove where there were occasional strong gusts right up to the boat ramp and a much shorter walk. Foil windsurfed from about 2-3pm powered about 70% of the time on a 4m. (Pam rocks read about 25mph over that time) Current was ebbing a bit strong so had to point upwind most of the time to maintain ground. Wouldn't have been good to be on a sinker! Was pretty Gusty and overpowered towards the center of the sound at the start of the session but big lulls towards the end. Wasn't as much swell as I'd expect with the strong morning wind but maybe it's larger on a flooding tide?

I ended up sailing furry creek Sunday morning instead. Think I ended up launching around 8.30am. Good winds but gusty and freezing, had to come back in and put on some booties, wind dropped around 11 and wind shadow moved a lot further out making it an interesting slog back at the end

Anyone interested windsurfing Furry Creek this week.
It's outflow whole week. Yesterday Pam Rocks was around 20kn till 10am, now it's 21kn, same probably for the next couple days.
I may consider going on Thursday early morning.
