Okay. Where exactly to start?

BTW, just got back from EB. It was horrendous.
Great company, but world's sh.ttiest wind and really, really ugly out.
Good company though.

I am thinking North Beach in the AM, then Backside once the tide fills in. Gotta stay in some shallow water to get Amber out for some work on her water start...

Albe,

It's gonna have too much west in it by sunrise for EB (I would think).

Accuweather is usually pretty good, and so far they are on target with the wind directions.

Should be WNW by late morning.

Doppler looks good and clearing. http://www.baynews9.com/Doppler9000.html
at least now that that the band and associated spikes to 40 are through!

thats a pretty wild squall that just came over us in ruskin. I'm guessing 30-40kts WNW


Sensors everywhere saying 24-30+, Lori isn't sure she wants to do a downwinder in that much wind ( 7m XBow II for her ) so I think we'll just go to NB

40 plus, guaranteed. I had a tree limb break and fall on the house.
Most sensors said 40 or so. Attached is the sensor reading by you.

Wolfie is at backside SW. SOLID 25.
Raul, give me a call.

In a lot of ways a dw is easier than holding ground.
We could do a short one, take a break, and do it again.

Today is a good day for someone to get whacked, don't let it be you!
