I like Beaverton

LAKE SIMCOE Beaverton

Arrived to clouds and diminishing NNW winds that hovered around 10 knots and was thinking I couldn't be bothered riggin and riding da friggin Formula stuff. So rigged both as per. Glad I did. After a few wound up runs on the Roberts came in and swapped for wee gear. Oh I remember now .... they call it windsurfing!

Wind was a bit up to 20 knots or so and down but was nice to be reminded of why I have been a part of this insane game for over 25 years.

Wasn't ideal but got waterstarts and bearing off planing deal dialed pretty quick. I see now why the local sailors like this place. Shallow, windy and warm. Note to self: ( it's totally worth the 1 hr 20 min drive...) I was a Beaver(ton) virgin but happily not anymore.

Commended Jeff Mac on his Rolling Merc Emporium of great gear. omgoodness. He was smoking on the new Isonics. The 147 might be worth a look see......
