I MAY join you. Just getting over the flu :evil: . What tide level do the Acadia sandbars allow launching?

No more free parking at Spanish Banks. The wind didn't want to pay for it :lol:

I think it's 0.7m (at noon) for Acadia sandbars. Maybe 1m for Dog Beach?

Classic westerly around here :). Forecast seems optimistic so I'd be surprised if there wasn't decent wind on the way.... Having said this, i guess having foil gear is a good idea.

Dont lose faith; its typical for the westerly to take a bit of time to push into english bay in the morning and overcome the night land breeze. Airports good right now and jerichos kicking in . Or it could just fizzle.

My prediction: There may be light wind, medium wind, or heavy wind. There may also be skunkage.

Come on out!
(maybe)

Some wind out here so I'll stick around. Low tide so I might check out Point Roberts for a wing.
