Squamish Racing

the Squamish summer race series kicks off this weekend.

This is meant to be an 'everyone welcome' sort of series, from beginner to expert. So if you're looking for a chance to give racing a shot, it's a pretty friendly crowd up here.
More info: http://www.squamishwindsports.com/events/events.php

Honestly it looks like the weather could go either way at this point, but we don't need perfect conditions to race.

Generally, you can check this link (sun is great, clouds are okay but not epic, rain means it could go either way): http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/pag ... ric_e.html

And look here for Inflow of at least 10 or 15. http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/marine/f ... teID=06400

Then check this link for positive temp gradients between Vancouver and Lillooet (the squamish reading doesn't matter). More gradient = more wind. http://wind.altoning.com/temp

On the day of, you can check Colin's forecast: http://www.vancouverkiteboardingschool. ... y/weather/

I'm thinking about coming up for the race this weekend. Can you update this thread when you have a better idea of the forecast (would make my decision to go by early saturday morning)

Thanks

well... looks like we'll have some sort of wind. just bring all of your kites.
Saturday for sure. Sunday (race day) looks a bit sketchier, but the gurus up here say it'll likely go. It'll be cancelled by 8am sunday if required though.

We basically race everyday anyways though. So Saturday will be just as fun. We leave a permanent course and there are enough people up here that we just sync our watches and give'r.

Forecast looks good (finally!) for this Sunday's race!!!

Radvance is coming to race. It would be cool if a few more of you WA guys and girls came along as well.

Ah that sucks Nick!

For anyone else racing will for sure be on! Should be powered 9 or 11m conditions!
