Sunday Aug. 10, Welcome to the Blue Lagoon

Dark skies but loaded with W-WNW wind...

Gear ready to go...

First time to the Blue Lagoon this past Sunday for 20+ winds and its a great site for W to NW winds on Anchor Bay. Site has $25 pass to buy but Dave (owner) says the gate will be open in to the late fall. Some grass areas to rig, alot of parking, and a nice ramp to the water for launching. Winds were 5.5m most of the day and at 3pm hit the 25+ 4.5M range for awhile. Plenty of room to sail and kite but watchout for power boaters racing into the nearby marina bouy channel.

Winds: W-WNW 20-30 all afternoon

Gear: JP 85 FSW, 104 Fanatic FreeMove, 86 Fanatic FreeMove, 103 RRD FSW (thanks Brent for the test hulls). Sails: NP 5.7M Expression and 5M NP Search

There: Everyone!
