Heading to SB for a long weekend this May 3-6 Thu-Sun for bachelor party. Is it worth my time to cart down all my gear as space will be at a premium. We're taking the surfboards and beer either way and I'm the only one that sails.

Thanks

My advice... leave the beer home to make room for WS gear, you can buy beer here. Bring your small stuff. Start thinking of excuses as to why you can't attend the Bparty. Where are you coming from?

Mike

From San Francisco. Its hard to come up with excuses when it's your party. I'm bringing the gear.

Thanks for the reply. Looks like potential for some great sailing. I'm staying a couple of block from East Beach in SB. I've surfed at quite a few spots in SB and the surrounding areas but never sailed.

Hi eric,

The bouy winds that Mike noted sometimes don't always come in well into Santa Barbara proper (East Beach or Leadbetter), but they can readily hit the far west end of Isla Vista or near the Bacara Resort (slightly west of Sandpiper golf course). At the latter spot, you need to park at the tennis club and walk over the hill to the beach. Also, if the wind has a predominant NW direction, El Capitan State Beach can be great on the beach above the point.

Lastly, its a good idea to keep an eye on C Street (Surfer's Point adjacent to the fairgrounds) in Ventura. If the wind is up, the extra drive from SB can be well worth it.

Hi eric,

I was sailing at Leadbetter yesterday and noted a sailor out with a blue and orange SF, but the bottom section of the sail was yellow. I wondered whether the sailor was you. It was a pretty stellar day for Leadbetter with winds averaging in the 28-30mph range. If that sailor was you, I was the sailor out on a red and yellow Windwing sail.
