Hi everyone,
Is anyone heading to Leo Carillo this weekend. I am a beginner, managed to sail last weekend but it feels better when there are other sailers around. I have a RRD 127L and 5.5 sail. Hope to see someone around

Forecast for Leo Carrillo is not encouraging for Saturday, Oct. 19. At best, it might be sailable on very large equipment later today, around 4pm. There is an event going on today, so parking will be a challenge.

If it's not too far for you, Cabrillo Beach might be a better bet. If you're comfortable on the open ocean, it's a sandy beach launch instead of the more advanced rocks at Leo. The only caution on the ocean side is that even though the surf break may be very small, it's very powerful, so if you're not comfortable yet handling your gear in the surf, maybe not.

But Cabrillo also offers an easy launch to your left as you drive out to the parking lot. This is a smooth beach into smooth water, and there are other sailors there. You'll often find the UCLA teaching crew there, too.

I love sailing Leo, but back in the day as a beginner/intermediate, the launch at Cabrillo, even on the ocean side, was a lot easier due primarily to the sand bottom and the smaller surf break. Just please pay a lot of attention--never turn your back on the ocean--and keep the nose of your board pointed into the surf, even though small, and keep your sail up and out of the water.

There will be a lot of us down there today--it looks good for this afternoon!

Have fun!

I also think Cabrillo will be better today. Plus the inside at Cabrillo is better than Leo for learning. There are usually more people sailing at Cabrillo than at Leo.
