There seems to be moderate consistency in the forecasts for moderate wind tomorrow morning. Prefer to see a gale force marine warning but I think it's worth keeping an eye out.

Well you missed a bit but not a lot. Arrived at twilight & on water soon after with 5.3. Was good for 45 minutes with building wind and swell. I thought wind would last so thought to try 4.5. By the time I was ready wind dropped and shifted south (very little wind on shore). Wind didn't seem like it was coming back so joined Kash & James kiting (9M). Did only 2 short sets as lulls spooked me.

Thanks for the report, hopefully there is some wind on the weekend.

Sorry Mike. Was planning to join you this morning at CNL but my daughter has the flu and I couldn't get away. Friday looks promising.

Anybody thinking of Centennial tomorrow? Forecasts seem to favour mid-day so I will probably decide in the morning. Van is packed and fingers are crossed
