NickB, I just wear ordinary Dakine ws gloves. No protection against cold. I have some dive gloves that I might try.

Later development: five people were sailing the speed channel at Hart's (by the boat launch) in the afternoon during low tide. One person clocked 40MPH by GPS. I did not sail there, because I need to improve waterstart reliability to not be a hazard in a narrow channel with power boat traffic (including USCG Station Bodega Bay).

Fantastic day for my first of the year. Cool
Ebb tide, fairly steady NW wind for this time of year
5.5 rigged tight and middle board for me (219#)
Good turnout: Guessing sails as I didn't spent much time asking what others were going to rig... I rigged 5.5 and went out and some were already derigged when I got back.
Bert (4.7), Les (5.8?), Carl (6.0), Hunt(4.9?), Joel (5.0?), Sergi(5.6), Dan (4.5) and a few others I forget their names right now (sorry.)
GPS says I got in 24 miles in 1hr30 minutes plus 10 minutes to walk back in the low tide mud.
Not much better than today for this time of year! Smile

PostPosted: Mon Feb 25, 2013 2:29 pm    Post subject: 3rd Ave Reply with quote

Just a few of us enjoyed a late Sunday afternoon sleeper session at 3rd Ave. Wind was decent outside of the marker from mid-channel to farside of channel, but not as strong as Saturday. Kind of weird like local sea breeze thermal wind but calendar says it's winter. Al little bit of mudwalk to exit, but not too bad. Looks like it may repeat again today but maybe a touch stronger and with a little more water for exit. Get out and enjoy life!

PostPosted: Sun Mar 03, 2013 10:40 pm    Post subject: Natural Bridges Reply with quote

Sailed Natural Bridges. Nice medium long period swell. Wind gusty and stong on the outside and weak and gusty near shore. Lots and lots of dolphins on the outside. One sea otter on the inside. Up to half a dozen surfers at times, but usually around four. I am feeling like I got some exercise. Now for a steak and a beer. Good day!

Brief planing on 6.4 after an easy enough water start, then erratic. Harness mishap opened a rip in the sail... bummer. I had something rigged not quite right anyway, and this sail should have been on the 460 SDM that I didn't bring. It works on a 430 RDM with long extension, but behaves better on the 460.

Two other people went out on 6+, several kites up.

Hour and a half sailing formula gear. Ninth day of the year so far, could have been fifteen. There is a point to big gear that gets you to where the wind is and has a very broad wind range. 10.0 worked in averaging 15 to averaging 23.
