Gorge 2011 Day 6 7-15 Doug's - missed yesterday.

Last chance day and it appears as though sailing was good here yesterday (4.7's) as we waited at Roosevelt. Never great here but an hour or two of rides on the 85 JP FSW and 5.3 Forces. Lots of people here hoping it would go but it never really happened like day before.

Best was dinner at Everybody's Brewing in White Salmon - great view of Mt Hood. New hot spot for après.

Gorge 2011 Day 5 7/14 Roosevelt wanes

Trying for repeat here in Far East but it never fully developed. More 15-25 but clear clean sky and temps in upper 80's. Stopped by Rowena to see a couple lucky guys catch a short evening sesh.

Gorge 2011 Day 4 7/13 Roosvelt Cruising

Winds in the Far East 20-30 for a nice evening session 80 liter Naish Wave from 5 to 9pm. Home in HR at 11pm!

Gorge 2011 Day 3 7/12 Rowena Evening

Got in a good Rowena Evening sesh on the Quads (76 and 78) and the 5M's. Salvaging the morning break of Swell gradients.
