Great late December 15-20 SSW - I'll take it. 3.5 hours on water with the 12m and a balmy 46 degrees. Not bad. Good winds kicked in at 3pm and the Fox and I were last off of the water. Latest sesh ever by the Calendar and it wasn't even that cold! The hard core MBKT all had smiles and grins going for this gift of a sailable Winter Saturday.

Monday: kiting in the rain and SSW 15-20+. Misery of rain and dark skies with the glory of only about 6 kiters out. 2 hours of wet fun and teaser for....
Wednesday! 25-35 West at Harsens. Sunny and 60 degrees with about 30+ sailors and kiters out. Started 4.2 overpowered blasting then after about 30 minutes down to the 3.7 for an hour. Great tiny curling waves made for few jumps but holes and gusts made it so had to go back to the 4.2. Got in 2 hours before it dropped to 20's by 2pm. Time to kite. 9m Rebel fix was in and kite was fast in the big winds. Easy upwind made for great downwinders working on the jibes and topside. Day flew by like Keith on his 12m handling 30++ peak winds like a pro. Memorable day to round out week.

Friday: SSW 15-30 way overpowered on a 5.4 good short session out at the point but 4.7 would have been perfect. No slogging here.

Sunday: SSW 15-30 gusty but perfect powered 12m nice almost 3 hours with a little 4.7 pointe session. Thank god for kiting. Off for more right now Monday!

Solid fun kiting last weekend - still living off it. 2 posts in one. While we wait for fall winds....
Sunday at Harsens and SW to W to WNW 20-30 with cooler temps and clouds and occasional rain and sprinkles. About a dozen of us out and started right away with the 9m Rebel. Perfect setup for the Carbon Mako and staying way upwind and playing on downwind carving along the shoreline. Wen to the surfboard later and then finally the 4.2m Atlas and the 84 FSW for a great hour in 25+ west winds. Lots of jibes and carving 360's with a few jumps. Really nice sesh I between the kiting and pulling on some different muscle groups. Swell was really fun as well - just about a perfect 2 a sport day. Looking forward to more this with fall here now. We need it after a really poor wind season. Kiting filling in really well for all the missed WS.
