Probably Epic Squamish Saturday

Off Topic Comments, Help, Tips and Trick

Could be an epic this coming Saturday.

-- EC predicts 20-30 inflow at Howe Sound
-- Looks sunny northerly (Squamish to Lillooet) and mainly cloudy in Vancouver.

Been a while since I've used my 68L Angulo board at the Spit.

Keep our fingers crossed.

I hope so. Today’s graph was putrid.

I don't like the Lillooet forecast at all for the Spit Saturday.

Bbay should have nice tides and 12 knots though.

Yesterday was good sailing for about an hour but was finished before noon. I expect something similar today.

Glad you guys piped up. I was stoked to go. Graph isn't looking good now. Hopefully tomorrow. :?

My issue with the Lillooet forecast was that it was calling for west wind. For a good day at the Spit Lillooet should be calling for 30-50 km/h south wind.

It's since changed to SW but that's still not a great sign, especially at only 20 km/h.
