Gate at Acadia is usually opened by 7am - its part of Pacific Spirit Park and is operated by Metro Vancouver (just like Boundary Bay Regional Park aka Centennial). All the other parking lots along Spanish Banks are operated by Vancouver Parks Board - different organization, different operating hours.

FT may be the best bet for strong wind. Jericho and Kits sensors show its dropped their alot so maybe foil??? Looks like classic uncertain NW. Could be nice, could fail. Sitting on my garage undecided what and if to pack car.

Undecided as well, Jericho keeps dropping. Thanks for the OSR AJ, that doesn't sound good.

At Jericho. I don’t think it’s enough for windfoiling for me. If it was sunny and warm maybe I’d give it a try.

JSC sensor is probably bang-on from I can tell.
