Default Cabrinha in La Ventana

The Cabrinha crew will be in La Ventana Jan 16-23. We will use Capt. Kirk's as our base of operations. So, if you want to test drive a 2011 Crossbow, Switchblade, Nomad, Convert, S-Quad, Custom, Caliber, or production race board, just continue to check this website for details, or you can email me at stevengunn@comcast.net.
OR,
you can just stop by and meet the World's fastest "sailor" Rob Douglas, and Damien LeRoy; former US National Champion, the current Caribbean and La Ventana Classic Champion, and the 2010 Silver Medalist at the 2010 World Championships and North American Continentals ...and have a cold one.

blew 20 with gusts to 25 here in La Ventana on Sunday so we had the 9 Crossbow and 9 Nomad out along with the 8 and 10 Switchblade.

Blew 18 avg today Monday with gusts to 20-22; better than forecast. Had the 9 and 11 Cabrinha Crossbows out along with the 10 and 12 Switchblades. Also the Customs, Caliber and S-Quad.

We'll be out in front of Captain Kirk's again tomorrow Tues when there is wind. Come give the stuff a test...so far,everyone who has tried has really liked the gear

I'll check the for in the AM and post again....but if there is wind, we'll be ready

Will be in front of Capt Kirk's when the wind comes up...really glasssssy right now at 10:30.
wind has been betta than forecast for last several days, so let's hope today is the same
