Turns out I don't need my kit there! The local sailing club has boards from 78l to Formula with sails from 3.2 to 9.5m. There's a community of windsurfers who do trips to spots 45mins away from campus where aparenty <5.0m is normal. They've got a trip to the gorge this weekend I'm just missing cause I'm moving in...

Agrelon, think you would need to fly in your F93, yet for Gorge you might need something more aggressive. Good luck with the move to VA, BC - what a wonderful spot, yet the water are damn freezing...

Check out http://thewindsurfer.com/ for the local Vancouver/Squamish windsurfing community - pretty active forum with some pretty good local wind forecasting and reporting.

Squamish (about an hour north from Vancouver) is a thermal spot and works from May through late September or so; Vancouver gets post-frontal clearing winds, as well as thermal/seabreeze conditions out of the NW that make for sailable (but generally light) conditions at Jericho. The exception are the occasional strong post-frontal clearing winds that happen in spring or fall.

Fall/winter/spring dish up a pretty good number of big frontal systems; those tend to blow hard from the South. Not sure where the Vancouver folks go to sail those; I live in Bellingham (just south of the border), so I sail here when that happens.

Sounds like you got in touch with the local community already - I've always found the BC sailors to be a fun, sociable crowd, so you'll have lots of good company on the water.

Cheers,
-Andreas
