Belle River CAN, This place has had its chances but yesterday with near gales it was still too lite for me, even at 20WNW gusts to 30 all wavy and mostly onshore. Its a place you have to hike out to get going and make it past the breakwall - I had a 5.7 rigged with the JP 85FSW and it worked for awhile and had lots of potential but then it dropped off after an hour or two. When its not cranking your left with is mushy loud conditions where the wind has no guts... The chart says it all - pretty good up until 2pm. Should have been at KP.
There for it: MB, Jeff and the Silver Fox
Meanwhile the action was north of us....

Another great ride today with Jabber today got in 15.6 miles in 2 hours at Holly Rec State Park - East loop. Great place to do a really long ride and today was nice 65 degrees with sun and hard fast single track...I'm coming back next weekend!

The days highlight was Brent with numerous back loop attempts was hitting the port tack stuff as well as the starboard. Craig lofting his classic big airs on the way out and Millard cruising down the line way faster than I could keep up with. The wave riding was great in the later afternoon as things started to clean up in the "pit" as the wind turned more north. What a day though of non-stop action - totally burned out all energy, most exhausted I've ever been sailing. I'm good for a week atleast now - bring on the Alleve! Thanks you mother nature...now if we could just get a straight north and a Lex day.
Winds: WNW 20-30K with NW later in PM
Waves: Mostly bumpy 6-12ft. but a couple of mast high 15ft. monsters too!
The Dawn Patrol crew: Brent, Millard, Craig
Catering: Thanks you Tim Hortons!
