  1. I guess nobody windsurfs anymore....or never did in this forum. 20 knots, easy on a short board and flat water with a nice camber induced sail and a nice fin that won't spin out. 30 knots...not as easy but fat or tall windsurfers can do it in flat water with a lot of wind (but you are going faster than the wind with so much apparent, so 20 knots of wind is enough).

The grand majority of sailors racing are beer
  5. Hi, As far as windsurfing is concerned.......Lake Nitiat is fun in BC on Vancouver Island. Strange place to windsurf, since it is not really a lake but salt water. The wind blow through a gorge, similar to Hood River and the Columbia, but due to the ferry ride, it takes about the same amount of time to get to Hood River. Squamish in BC is windy too, but water is really COLD....glacial in fact. Good lead boat racing around too. Victoria - Swiftsure, Southern Straits West Van are not far away, and as you say, the cruising is fabulous in the San Juans. Buy a raincoat, though, you m
