Everyone keeps saying what a tremendous season it has been so far. I checked that monthly data for May and the data agrees!
The month of May delivered 24 sessions on average sail size of 4.9 meters and average air temperature of 54.1 degrees. The season on the whole has delivered 63 sessions on average sail size 4.6 meters and average air temperature 48.7 degrees. That is simply spectacular!
The month of June is starting off well with wind predicted for both June 1 and 2. Honestly, I can't keep up with all the sessions. Now that we have the foil I could pretty much ride almost every day on a 5.0 meter sail or smaller. I got caught complaining the other day that there was too much wind and I couldn't foil. Lol. I almost had to slap myself. The last couple years have been so windy that I really don't need a foil, but it is just so much fun that I now find myself sometimes going to places where the wind does not blow as hard just so that I can have a better chance to foil. That is certainly a change in perspective for me.
There are a couple sessions of photos from May if you click here, and a couple sessions of videos if you click here. There is also an update of my windsurf foiling progress if you click here. Have fun out there!
