It looks like we could get a NW on Wednesday. The forecasts are agreeing there will be wind, they don't agree on when it will be though.

An afternoon low tide session at Spanish banks would be nice.

Iona will work on westerlies but lower tides can be a loooooooooong walk to the water.

Acadia should have sandbars good for launching at 11am.

Scored a solid 2 hours on 5.0/95 litres at Locarno this morning. A few nice waves mixed in with the chop. Conditions weee best from about 930-1030.
Hopefully more tomorrow!

Glad you got out Brian. Arcadia must have been good too. Did anyone get out there?

Simon, I opted for Locarno due to the rapidly dropping tide. It looked to me like it would be too low by 10am. I’m curious if anyone sailed there and how late they had enough water depth over the sandbar.
