He doesn't seem to be blowing quite hard enough if the weather station is to be believed. I guess he won't be blowing at the weekend with the light westerly wind forecast.

Al the best way is to go down and check...last week the station forecast gave 10-13 knots..then I went down and I was on a 9 meter kite!!..sometimes it is just blowing in the channel, not even before the bending which brings you to the parking of Ynyslas

I realise that is the best way but to fit with work and other things I first need to work out when to expect him to blow and then it helps to know he is actually blowing and it's worth a trip.

Am I right in thinking this weekend is unlikely?

I'm heading to Aberdovey on Saturday morning to pick up a sail and for the Boardwise demo day so I should be in the right place anyway without needing to rig any kit

Al check this

http://www.alananna.co.uk/blog/2008/ivor-borth-and-ynyslas-katabatic-wind/

well sometimes I have done trips that I thought were not worth (see Friday evening at 7.00-and saturday at 6.00 am last week) and got the prize on both occasions..of course I was down yesterday evening after work training, etc. and did not get anything...unfortunately we do not leave in Brazil ..hence i try to put other things behind whenever possible..just for one day/few hours..
hope to catch you soon on the water
