Sunday Aug. 22 Lex Looks Good...but disappoints

South Huron Bouy 8/22/10

Too bad the chart always looks good when it really isn't. Here it was North 20+ from 6AM on - signaling to me to the 1.5 hour drive up to Lexington but in getting there we find there's too much offshore NNW winds to deal with. With just JAB and I to rig we went WAY out and got about 1.5 hours in of 7M cruising. Something but not enough and it definitely doesn't cover the 3 hours of driving...

Monday Aug. 16, Finally a Metro Session

4 reasonably good hours on the 107 FSW and the very powerful 6.9 Expression. WSW-W-WNW mostly puffy in the 12-20 range gave a couple of good rise and kept me out for almost 4 hours in sun and 80 degrees. As for the water quality at Metro - it's horrible - almost criminal based on whoever is dumping overflows into LSC. Blue Lagoon is atleast clean - just wish it worked better on a west wind. Come on back winds, we need more of this stuff.
