Oct 23, 2014 by timssailloft

i will be in the area for a month and wonder what size sails to bring. I plan to bring one short board and my Mistral Equipe.

i have a good 3/2 wet suit and all the rest of the cold weather gear. Lake superior barley warms up for swimming during the summer and only in the shallow bays.

North Florida, late January thru early March is winter time, so dry suit maybe needed. At the least a wet suit, shorty if you're lucky.

Bill, I am still on the fence about hauling a boat that far. Besides I will have to dig out some snow banks just to get it on the road. Weather will be a factor as always.

Yep I would say 9.5 and something smaller. It is a long haul from up north with a trailer boat but there are plenty of bays to explorebetween Panama City and points east

We definitely have some beautiful beaches around here. If you get out of the arm pit and go farther west or a bit down south, the water becomes clear and blue! If you don't bring a boat you can always rent some kayaks and paddle the springs here, they're gorgeous!

AlexB: Figured that, I am thinking about hauling my 21' center console to run around the bays and beaches. Is it worth the trouble to bring a boat down? We live on Lake Superior and play in the apostle Islands area, Bayfield,WI.

Haha great question!

But if I had to guess:

If Fred replies it'll be a 4oh to a 5.2
If Perry replies probably a 5oh to a 6.5
If Bill replies it'll be a 6oh to a 9.5
If Bob replies I'm guessing 5oh to 7.5
If Mark replies 7.5 and 9.5

I'd say bring everything from 4m to 12m and a bunch of big kites, a foilboard, a SUP and fishing poles. :)

BRING EVERYTHING! Wind's about as predictable as the FL lottery. :)
