Sometimes Strong, Always Safe
The wind direction is pretty stable, varying a few degrees between NE-ENE.
This means slightly side-off to side shore at our launch area. On the occasions
the wind is reinforced through a big cold front blowing south through the Mid-West into the
Gulf of Mexico we can often see 4-5 days in a row with the wind around the 30 knot mark.
Given that it is a closed body of water and we have a rescue jet-ski on standby, it is a great opportunity
to sail in conditions you wouldn’t normally. What does this mean in terms of gear? Our most
used gear sizes are 76L-95L boards, sails 4.0-5.0. and kites from 5m-10m.
