North Cape Downwinder on Sat
I am organizing a downwinder on Sat from Sandy Neck Beach/Barnstable Harbor to Corporation Beach from 10-12. Should be some nice wind blown swell waves with a nice WNW wind.
Hopefully stop for a quick lunch break and then do another downwinder from
Corporation to 1st Encounter!
PM me for me details. You must be an intermediate or above above self sufficient rider. Around 7 miles.
Should be a great time, high tide is around 12:30-1:00.
PM me for more details.
Sounds delish, but I'm busy on Saturday....
I just sent you a PM. This should be more fun than fighting the crowds at Chapin.
Just hoping for a bit more of a push tho, that would be GROOVY maybe even TUBULAR for you surfers.
I'm interested... keep me in the loop!
What size kites are people flying?
beotches, I'm in! I will meet Gilles at Corporation at 8:30, leave my car there, and then hop in his car over to Sandy Neck for a 9AM start.
I'm in- anyone want to arrange a car drop at Chapin or Corporation and ride over to Sandy Neck with me?
I'll call you later today.
SAT...NW WINDS 10 TO 15 KT WITH GUSTS UP TO 25 KT. SEAS 2 TO
Will be there, will see with Jean if we car pool or leave an additional car at Corp
just what the doctor ordered! See you there tomorrow
See you guys in the am then.
How'd it go??
20 knots SW from 8am to 4am in Hatteras today. I had a Blizzard at DQ and now can't feel my legs. Sky Rkt is a tool. Cheers.
It was da tits. Wind acted flukey at first, I had to re rig from a 9 to a 12, Johnny D stayed with me to support my efforts, while Chaley, Hepp, Tim Christian, Stephan, and Peter Lyons charged across the open water. JD and I finally made it an hour later to a cheering crowd. Great team, great effort great fun. Oh, and Skyrocket showed up late, and made it across as well. Paul had to walk back coz he couldn't relaunch, and Julian decided to stay put and scored a powered solo session at Sandy Neck.
I LOVE downwinders, even though they can be logistically challenging.
Awesome day indeed. Coming across the bay into Chapin with Hepp, Chaley, and Peter, we were in a sweet quad formation (praying the wind wouldn't crap out too). Made me feel like a cowboy rolling into town with our kite posse! I definitely want to explore more downwinders on the cape. West Dennis to Hardings next SW?
Looking at the graphs, it appears Wingaersheek might have been a better call for today.
Actually I have to agree in regard to that feeling. As Jean and I crossed I had that moment when I was trying to describe how I was feeling. Good friends, special moment, and the view!!! It was one of those time when you say to your self "This is it!!"
Much fun pulling a DW with you guys!
