There have been some inquiries about accommodations. Jupiter's hotel rates seem to have gone up this season sad to say. Still, some ideas for hotels appear at:

Wx Update From the Beach:

Wind is sideshore, SE about 15 mph, ranging from 12 to 17 mph per ikitesurf. Nice wave sets are coming through and the contest is going ON! It may build through the day, fingers crossed.
