10/7 Grants 5.8m 85L

Great morning! Fully powered up on 5.8m with the 85L board... probably easily could have been on a 5.2m, but too lazy to re-rig. Sailed until about 10:15, then it started to lighted up and get holey. Cashed it in, definitely worth the drive! NICE!!!!

Water temp wasn’t bad, not sure the actual temp... the level seems to have stabilized over the last month. Not too bad, but a little walk to the pond (my guess about ~ 100 yards), still a reasonable reach however.
Tomorrow? Wednesday? Maybe? (a number of the wind meters are out around the Tooele valley, so unless they come back, it's a leap of faith to head out).
Sounds like you got a great day at DC on Saturday, NICE!

Yep, nice day at DC. Gusty as usual, but quite a few fully powered out and backs, which is always something to be grateful for. 6.5/119 worked well for me.

Thought about Grants, but with the meter down and Arrowhead showing ~20 at 10 or so, went for the "surer" thing. Thanks for the report.
