Here it is May 1st and we are enjoying a mild front that pushed through, thats awesome. I sailed at the Stuart Causeway yesterday and saw quite a few sailors out, some catching one last run before heading north for the summer. I thought the wind was going to be more easterly so I brought the formula board and my bigger sails. When I arrived it was blowing straight down the river and the wind line said 21mph. So I rigged my 7.0 and had a pretty wild ride. Cruised up to the cove north of Joes Point and caught some huge gusts. I was heading so far up into the cove I had to cut my run short because I wasn't sure of the water depth. I wish I had brought my gps because the speed on the flat water was unbeliveable. Today and Friday are looking good as well.
