Hmm looks like some potential for 4c SE Boxing Day fun.

Wear your mittens!

Crap! Too busy today ... also cozy warm indoors. Hope someone is getting some.

Few of us got out. Was surprisingly good. I was adequately powered on my 15 on the NE. Things got flukey as it turned SE, could see and feel the moist and (relatively) warm air arriving in puffs. Then ramped it up to lit on my 15m (teens gusting mid 20s knots).

Waves were perfect for boosting around 11 but then got a little more disorganized.

Warmed up from 2c to a tropical 5c while I was there from 10-12AM.

James forgot his booties, but toughed it out until Adam loaned him a pair. Ha ha, good times.

I opted for the afternoon shift with better tide 12:30 - 2:00. Nice to be back on the water after a month.

Things had shifted south and come down by this time. The graph isn't indicative at all though, it was a solid 13-16 knots.

How anyone could manage without booties today is beyond me though.

“Managing” to live does not necessarily make the experience recommended.

:lol:
