It would be great to bring my boat and sail with you in the warm sunny weather of eastern WA. Let me know when your season starts.

Great, I think you would really like it. We usually launch from a public access beach at Port Kelly, about a half mile down stream from the Walla Walla Yacht Club (see link). http://www.hobiecat.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=5637 The wind is generally quite steady and there is very little boat traffic. We usually start sailing in late March - Mid April. The days are a bit cool (60s) and the water is down right cold (wet or dry suits a must). The air starts warming up in May with good wind and the water 'warms' up in July. We like to take our motorhome down for extended weekends (Thursday-Sunday) a couple times a month through out the summer. Both my wife and I like to sail alone together (i.e., solo). Me on the H17Sport and her on a Weta Trimaran http://www.wetawest.com/(upgrade last year from a Bravo). I'll post when when we head down. :wink:
