The third weekend of May is a holiday for our neighbors to the north. And with cool and unsettled weather, only the hardy sailors made the trip. But hey, Canadians are known for their hardiness and a little cool and unsettled weather is fine with them. Sailors were treated to great wind on Saturday, mostly at sites east of Hood River, like Doug’s and Roweana.
Special BC friends from our Windance Rental days stopped to say hi.
Sunday morning Windance hosted their traditional swap meet where sailors and kiters searched for that special something that they just couldn’t live without. It’s also fun to reconnect with friends back from Baja, Maui, and other winter sailing adventures around the world. Summer sailing in the Gorge is just a few weeks away.
Windance’s Dave Nunn helps newest Ezzy quiver owner Ali from Portland. Ali and his wife Holly can’t wait to get out on the water on their new Panthers.
I’ll be on the beach again this summer with all the 2010 Ezzy sails for you to take out for a session. And if you buy a new Ezzy (or any previous model) and need some rigging tips, I’m here to help. So if you’re coming to the Gorge check the Ezzy website or Windance for times and locations of my demos. And please feel to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) anytime with your questions. Hope to see you on the beach this summer. And don’t forget Windfest the third weekend of June at the Event Site. Gary
