Always good to start with low expectation on westerlies.

I thought it might have been a low to moderate day, maybe wind foil. However, METAR/TAF suggests maybe more for the early risers:

04 APR - 1200 to
04 APR - 1700
290 @ 18 KNOTS
GUSTS 28 KNOTS

Wait and see. Maybe Acadia.

I’d take steady 14 knots and windfoil over gusty 18-28, but I’ll try to make anything work.

Sounds pretty good. Tides are nice from 1:30 ‘till dark.

Got a good start at Locarno and 1.5hrs on 84L and 4.6. Lots of fun, especially starboard tack. Took a break at 10am and started to get really chilled, so headed home for to prepare our family Easter brunch. Maybe I’ll go back for a windfoil session later if the wind holds.
