Hey Charlie,
Forecast for the weekend is a duplicate of last week, with NW clearing winds to 25. I might have to kite Berkeley again...

Looks good!

Btw, this is the source for the NWS forecasts, which are reasonably good. Keep in mind they're meant for the safety of the public, rather than kiters or windsurfers and may be a little conservative as they'd rather overstate conditions than understate them, but I find them to be quite good.

And anytime there's any color-coding for the Bay, it's good.

I was amazed he made it back to the launch, I don't recall seeing anyone go out so far and downwind on a reach and actually making it back to the launch. I thought he'd end up in the far cove by Seabreeze or on the Frontage Rd. beach for sure, and I always wince when that happens. #-o I guess the 17m caught a puff and came through for him.... O:)

Well, in the end it's always up to Charlie's "Wind God", but I was really, really determined NOT to end up on that beach (or on the freeway, for that matter) with all you Berkeley locals watching.

I did hit a couple of rocks on my way back around the point, though. I'm sure there are many more dues to pay...
