flying on sunday?.
« on: July 10, 2008, 22:28:46 »
anyone going down, a quick look at windguru gives it a thumbs up, decent wind low tide at around 3 ish and the wind is blowing across the beach which makes a change!

i have yet to fly this year so im hoping to actually get out in the buggy for once when theres actually enough wind to get me moving!!!!!!

Make that a possibly, Jamie - it'll depend on the weather for me.

Windguru is showing fairly light winds both days - 9-10 mph at 13.00 - although Monday is forecast as a Westerly (onshore) - Tuesday looks better but we're away then.

I'd guess Paul would probably welcome that sort of wind for the Beamer.

I never really trust Windguru anyway!  But if conditions are anywhere near I'll probably be down.

yes hattster ill be allonby, usual carpark


ill be heading down in the afternoon probably 3ish (lowtide is at 3) as thats when the wind seems to be strongest, however its dropping fast so we might end up farting into our kites to make them fly at this rate

Glad you guys enjoyed it it - a pleasant afternoon.  (And Phil, if tomorrow's anything like, with a westerly forecast, see you down there!)

Sure, tide's are very short this week but I went down 2.30 today so 3ish tomorrow should be fine.  Subject of course to wind & weather.
