Thanks Michael, yes, I have some spares, it's my first loss to the river in a while, it's part of the sport, if Oregon was open I'd probably be down a mast and sail by now.

Did you see this, I guess this need with a broken mast. From Trudys facebook page.
Looks like they are having lots of fun down there.

Yes between Dana's Boardhead page and Trudy's page I've been envious all year unfortunately. It looks like they've had an exceptional season so far.

I was on 105 and 5.0 yesterday.

Schlogged to the stairs. The current was strong. Messed up the landing. Couldn't orient the rig properly, and the sail went under. Luckily I made it without any damage.

Next low tide, I'll come in on the sandbar and walk

Hope you make it, yesterday I went to Nexan first but there was almost no wind and a definite wind line quite far out so I drove to the spit where there was 20 knots.
