Saturday looks to be a great day at Mentor Headlands.

Time to get out those lonely little kites sitting in your closet. (Except for Joel who will surely be riding his 9M again.)


NOAA:
Saturday: WNW wind 18 to 23 kt becoming W 29 to 34 kt. Winds could gust as high as 43 kt. A chance of showers. Waves 3 ft building to 11 ft.

If Windfinder shows 24 that means it will probably blow at least 40. Let's just hope it is not too much...
Any Detroit guys want to come over?

Yes, Gale does blow.

I'll be there, with my camera, but I'll probably be windsurfing. I may put my waterproof HD camera on my helmet. If you see me windsurfing with a helmet and that thing on my head, don't be afraid to come pretty close.

Gonna be windy--may be too much of a good thing. Who's bringing Monopoly?

I'll bet some of the randomly parked car buddies would like to play some monopoly with you. Pants optional.

It might be light enough early in the morning. If not, Saturday should be good in the morning. I do Fairport Harbor on a NW wind.

I decided it was too much for Mentor, so I went to Whiskey Island in the morning. I sailed my 4.2 for a couple hours till it got too big.

Headlands should be good tomorrow morning. Maybe most of the day.

Did anyone else even get out on the water at all? Huh? Well Mister Big Man? Huh? Didja?

I'm leaving for Fairport Harbor now.
