LTB Sun is Another day - another Thermal.

Woo, 3rd day and down to 12m with quick pop to 20's with a lot of SW in it. Weird as everything said NW but on water it was WSW. Even gave Avery a ride between my legs on the Duke. A little hotter today started it early and then quickly closed it before 4 but then it picked back up?... great Day again with short run on the Mako too but the Duke still rules the day.

Big 2 sport Wednesday was classic.

Early 2 hour MTB at Highlander doing the new trails and course set for race. 70 degrees and sun was dry perfect for singletracking and bombing the DH sections getting setup to sail in the afternoon....

Over to Petoskey SP and it's firing 18-22 by 2:30 so the 14 is the call for some mostly overpowered fun in the swells right in front of the park. 12 would have been perfect but the 14 was juiced all day. Some great heel side swell cuts and across the line fun headed back from Harbor Cove. Water and wind temps both at 75 with full sun powering the thermal until almost 6pm. Great 2 sport day.

Tuesday LTB delivers finally thermally excellent

Well clouds and rain closed chance to sail on Sunday and Monday here in Petoskey although it ripped in Frankfort after a nothing day we spent there on Saturday. 14m and Duke worked well sailed up into HS and Romona Park and mostly in the bay center where all the winds were. Sun and 78 degrees worked between 2-5pm. Missed some of the session as a forgot to turn on Strava again!
