never know unless you try

Ontario Vineland

After spending the last 2 days trying to find a suitable launch between Fifty Point and Burloak Park in a NE (I found none) I decided today was Victoria Avenue day. 4.0 smallest sail rigged flat; 7'11" board; did one run out and back and left with my tail between my legs, and a bummed knee. The lake was raging on its 3rd+ day of 30+kn. Gusts had to be well over 40kn. Note to self: when the kiters are on 5.5, probably means the 4.0 isn't the call...2 other guys on 3.6 making a good go of it. Water temp was fine but air temp was cool. First time ever sailing here, will be back. Decent launch.
