Deceiving Forecasts

When it comes to wind, January has been very disappointing so far. Somehow the conditions announced by the weather forecast never materialised. We have had big but messy waves in Carro with very light mistral winds at the beginning of the new year. South easterlies are usually pretty good at Fos-sur-Mer. This Thursday they announced about 30 knots. But when I arrived at the beach the waves were again quite big but the wind just didn't make it into the bay. There was too much east in it. At another spot it was howling 3.7 weather onshore. Sailed there for about half an hour until I finally gave up as it was really crappy out there.
In search for wind and good freestyle conditions we also made a trip to Leucate where the wind did not play ball once again. Forecast was for 20 knots which was actually a mere 8 - 12 knots. Nonetheless, some photos of the few January sessions I've had:
