6/3 Nice SE day?

Post by xwindsurf » Thu Jun 02, 2011 4:41 pm

Marine forecast: 15-25 kts. Other sites say at least 17 to 20 miles most of the day. 92 degrees inland.
Kegs, Illinois Beach? Any plans? Or pieces of advice?

I'm headed to Waukegan early, and if it isn't blowing by 9:30-10:00, I'm heading up to Sheboygan. It should be a warm one for a change. I hope it doesn't completely kill the wind!

That sucks on the $20, I was thinking it wasn't until tomorrow. Is it blowing at least?

10 SSE is my best guess. The metra station is 50¢ an hour or $5 for the whole day if you're willing to walk...

I just went to Montrose to fix a bar and a kite. It's actually picking up. I think I'll head back out right now and chill out and watch. I thought this wouldn't pop in...but it is...sorta :?

There is the pier that sticks out the whole way at my back....that's why it's so smooth. The SE wind is AWESOME @ Montrose. These stealth sessions, like you had just a week ago, make it all worth it!!
