Well, welcome to the South Oregon Coast wind predictions versus actuals. More importantly on no wind days, did you find the SOC Queen's, and the Fireball stash? For wind forecasts in the gorge, google gorge is my gym.

Sorry to hear the wind didn't show. When in the Gorge also take a look at iWindsurf's "daily briefing". If you don't have an account you can check it out at Windance or most of the other shops as well. Safe travels!

Bummer, Hiyo. We're off Thurs, likely to the Gorge first then to the coast as weather dictates. Check out thegorgeismygym.com for Gorge sailing too. We'll likely stay in Tucker park for the Gorge bit. We're in the burgundy Westy😎 i'll bring the Fireball...

Cool, winddoc, maybe I'll see you there! Planning to arrive Friday evening.
Looks like it might rain on Saturday... Does that mean no wind like Nitinat? :?

This entire week looks great for Florence, mid September every year, bummed we can't go...no fun sailing alone. Maybe I can live vicariously through someone else's wind adventure? Huge swell to arrive next weekend too and some Southy
