Tried. Pillar Point was 30+ when I left home, dead when I got there (around
11:00 am). The front blew through real fast.
I left work at about noon for Newcastle Beach. It was blowing pretty good,
one guy was out and getting hammered with 5.0m. E***d, I drove home,
loaded up and went back to the beach (30 minutes max).
It was nearly dead calm. ??!!
I talked to the lucky guy who was sailing for about 45 minutes. (Sunshine,
60+ degrees (F), 0 wind.) Feeling guilty about the mounting pile of work, I
drove home, unloaded, changed clothes, and went back to work. When I arrive
at the office (maybe 30 minutes after leaving the beach) I can see swells and
white caps on the lake from my office. It looked like it blew pretty solid
the rest of the day.
My non-sailing spouse, who observed this from a neutral viewpoint, wondered
aloud why I like this sport. I had to explain (again) that being teased by
nature is part of windsurfing's charm.
