Tower Road

Wow, it was warm today, pushing 70 degrees. Most wore no gloves, and there was no ice which was amazing because just a few weeks ago, ice had locked in the beach for about a hundred yards. Conditions were fun, albeit gusty 5.8 wind. Still, it was great to see so many sailors turn out, and we all enjoyed the unusually warm weather!

Weather front that passed thru and brought the wind

and then we saw a rare Dewey Beach Rainbow. I know its not much, but for Dewey, it may as well be Maui.

floaty board and a 5.8 was the right Kit for todays' gusty conditions

Before it got windy

Beautiful light today

The Zamboni came out today.

Nothing definate yet David. We have the Hatteras windsurfing festival in late spring-early summer that I don't want to miss, so any plans for Maui will have to revolve around that event. Most likely trip to mecca would have to happen either in april or july
