Out of Town

I had to go up to the USA to take care of some business and will be gone for a couple more weeks. I'm not real happy about being away during the windy season but the wind has been pretty spotty so far this year. I also missed the annual Veteran's Day party that comes to Algodones Beach each year. You can see photos from previous years: 2006, 2007, 2008.

Frustrating Week

We had strong wind most of the week, but it was too northerly to be kitable. Finally, it was the right direction on Saturday, even if it was pretty light. A couple of people tried to milk the last of the afternoon wind and paid the price, having to self rescue from a ways out in the bay with almost no wind as the sun was setting.
The water is still warm, around 80 degrees, but the wind can be chilly. Most of us are using at least shorty wetsuits and thinking about going with something warmer soon. It won't be long before I'll be wearing my dry suit again.
