Good sailing with you guys yesterday! Yup when the tide started ripping out of Rock Harbor all that floating grass got thick. I did not have a weed fin on so lots of chop hopping required. I made to my job in Hyannis just in time at 3:00pm.
I have 3 jobs in Sandwich today so I am out.
Have fun Hardy and Rocket Rick!!!!

Where is Bayview?


Bayview is a mile up the coast from Chapin. Less of a walk at low tide. A good dose of shore break at high tide. Access only off season.

Wavedawg and I looked at Bayview yesterday and with the extremely high tide the break was thumpin' . We decided to launch at the easier Chapin launch. Once on the outside it was pretty intense at the sandbars. The short period breaking swell made for some nice fun and trouble Shocked
We were the only windsurfers out there. A couple of kiters came later. Could see a few kites upwind at Mayflower.

Thanks for the info shredbob. I too have been looking for places to sail in NE winds. Years ago I sailed somewhere in that general area, and when the tide was low you had to walk forever to get back. Is that a big factor at Bayview and Chapin?

Much less a factor at Bayview--only 500 feet of walk at most. Mayflower similar. Chapin walk is almost 1/2 mile. Chapin is really only sailable for approx. 2 or 3 hours each side of high tide, depending on how high the tide. Also, water lasts longer if NE wind has been blowing hard. Hope that helps.

You asked about NE. A note about NNW at Bayview--too onshore to get out. Straight North can be a bit tough too.
