Spit wind is picking up probably around 13 knots and climbing. Big gear or light weight people. No coronavirus.

Rigging 8m

Guess I mix up between windsurfing and kiteboarding. Who cares I’m going out

fair amount of difference between an 8m sail and an 8m kite?

Not bad. Not great either. But enough to enjoy the sun out with 8m kite for an hour and joined by 4 other kiters. Wind started to clock westerly.

Solid outflow today through Monday but will get cold. Furry Creek looks good now but may be too cold tomorrow.
