Paddle Boarder Dies on River

We had some south winds come up Sunday and Monday. Sunday from 3:00 to 5:00pm it blew pretty good. Dino sailed for an hour or so and said he was well powered on a 6.2. Monday it blew all day but not as hard and some rain came through. I was able to sail for an hour in the afternoon on a 7.0. There was a lot of commotion at the boat ramp with the Marine Patrol, Sheriffs dept. and a news van. Someone saw them removing a body from a boat and I found this link to T.C. Palm news saying a stand up paddle boarder had died.

Swap meet?

The causeway cookout is coming up on March 23rd and I was thinking we could have a swap meet. So bring that gear you no longer use and we could buy, sell, trade.

The Night Crew is Back

I was on the water yesterday at 5:30 and sailed till sunset. At times I thought it was going to die and then it would fill in with a vengance! I was on the 101L futura and a 7.0, the wind was out of the NW with a clear sky. James was there and we kind of pushed each other to see who would quit first. OK he was the last one to haul his rig out of the water.

Causeway Cookout

We thought we would have another cookout before folks start migrating north. When: Saturday March 23rd. Where: Stuart Causeway east island. Time: I will start firing up the grill around 2:30pm. Bring your favorite cookout food, beverage & appetite. I will bring ice, eating utensils, plates, cups & charcoal. Please talk this up with fellow windsurfers since I don't have everyones email address. See you there!

NW wind made for some chilly windsurfing yesterday, especially when the clouds came in. This is the first time I wore a full wetsuit this winter. I rigged a 7.0 on the 101L futura, I was glad I had a lot of downhaul because I was really powered at times.
