    St Ives 24-28 Oct

    Heading down to St Ives for the half term week

    Forecast looks windy, but from the SE which maybe is not so good

    Would be a shame not to give Gwithian a go with it being right on the door-step but maybe it doesn't work in a SE? Would be bolt offshore..

    Have no experience sailing round that neck of the woods so any top tips gratefully received

    If there's plenty of E in the direction then possibly the beach in front of the tate gallery? (can't remember its name)

    Further afield Praa Sands and Marazion allegedly are good in SE.
    I've sailed Mazza from the car park adjacent to St Michaels Mount in a SSEly which was good cross on jumping fun.

    Would Harlyn be an option in a SEly for hallowed tack cross off dtl?

    GFS 06Z is showing more of a S-SWly theme
    It'll change again so not much point in speculating yet.

    Porthmeor
    Starting to wonder if it could be potentially very good for those of us doctrinated in the one true tack on Sunday/Monday.
    Sunday in particular looks more E-NE than SE'ly now and decently windy.
    3-4ft cross off? http://magicseaweed.com/Porthmeor-Surf-Report/1394
    What's parking like there???

    Hmmm, this could be a good call! You have to park in the carpark

    Well St Ives being my home town where I grew up, BUT Unfortunately before Windfsurfing :-(. And actually I lived just behind Porthmeor in Burrow Rd.

    The car park on the island might be better, but its small. Driving in Downalong is a pain though, almost all year round these days.
