It was sunny and warm at MH. It wasn't at Dougs when we were there.

There were a dozen sailors out at Rowena between 3 and 5pm and it was sunny with clouds to the west and east.

With the closure of the Maryhill Bridge, I have been sailing at Rufus instead of the Wall this Spring. I haven't seen more than one other windsurfer or any kiters out there this season (weekdays). There have been more fishermen than usual.
I did count about 20 sailors at the Hatchery a couple of weeks ago (also a weekday).
It is still early in the season. I'm sure the crowds will be back in July.
Enjoy the uncrowded conditions while you can.

And why drive when it's blowing in the teens (except for 90 minutes if one happened to be there at the time)?

Since I have to drive anyway, Dougs is one place I'm NOT going to hang around waiting for it to maybe get good when I see a cloud line farther east. Plus it was too north there when I was looking at it. Glad we all got some. Cool

I'm sure you're right, it's still early but after reading about all the people who have sailed many days this year I was surprised there weren't more people out. On the way east there was one guy out and on the way back at 6:30 there were 2 or 3 people out.
