  • Steve. YOu are right. While we were concerned about the front over Florida developing...that has fizzled out. Over the past 24 hours, both the wind and wave forecasts have decreased to very managable and fast sailing conditions. While we will probably get a little wet on Saturday...the ride will be worth it.

    Also, I wanted to share with the racers that we will have great sailor door prizes and an incredible raffle Saturday night including for example: Ruth Chris Steak House, APS, West Marine, IP Casino...to name a few. The Grand Prize is a two night stay at a swank resort in Destin, FL with a fishing trip (or round of golf) for two. That is a $900 package. I am stoked.

    I hope that everyone will make it.

  • Here is the most recent update....the forecasted winds are getting much better but the chance of rain is pretty high on Saturday......damn the torpedos.....full steam ahead.

    An area of low pressure will slowly move northwest across the northern Gulf towards the central Gulf Coast through Saturday and early Sunday. This will continue to cause moderate to strong east northeast and easterly winds through Friday night. Winds will slack off on Saturday.

    Small Craft Advisory in effect through Saturday morning
