We have been wanting to go for a slow, leisurely drift, and hopefully a similar leisurely paddle back to the launch site lately. But the wind is not cooperating with us. We have a couple of Eddyline rec boats, which are perfect for us. Between the boats and our “leisurely” activity style, that should tell you what kind of paddlers we are.
There is a near constant gentle breeze everyday here, usually like 3-7 mph. That daily breeze is not a problem. Its the rather windy days that have predominated so far this July that has greatly reduced our water time. Not looking for an answer of should we go out. We won’t go out if it seems to windy— don’t want to have to work while doing a recreational activity. I’m also being treated for anemia, thanks to the damnable mold that was killing me, putting energy levels in play.
So----- how do you decide if its too windy, too hot, too cold, too much effort etc?
