Hi Todd,

Sept has about 1/2 as many planable days as August and lighter wind in general. The earlier
weeks are better than the later weeks. We sail through October, but there are a lot
of days where it's Kiteable but not sailable on a 5.5. The last 3 years have yielded at least
4 planable days out of 7 (for me) during the 1st week of September. Take your full range of Kites.
