Default i-To-i Race is Saturday Dec. 13

Hi,

The i-to-i race is tomorrow, Saturday. Here's the scoop.

NOAA Marine Forecast:

SATURDAY
NORTHEAST WINDS 15 TO 20 KNOTS. SEAS 3 TO 5 FEET NEAR
SHORE AND UP TO 5 TO 7 FEET IN THE GULF STREAM. INTRACOASTAL WATERS
CHOPPY IN EXPOSED AREAS. SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS.

SUNDAY
EAST WINDS 15 TO 20 KNOTS. SEAS 4 TO 6 FEET. INTRACOASTAL
WATERS CHOPPY IN EXPOSED AREAS. SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS.

iWindsurf: NE high-teens for Saturday, E low 20's on Sunday

Accuweather: same

Tide: Sat/Sun - mid-tide going low;

Offshore wind currently which is forecast through the night and should make the shorebreak small, it's non-existent now, so launching should be less of an issue for most everybody. I think the forecast is ideal for the race. If it's too little wind, it takes forever to finish and is iffy. Too much wind could be a problem too. I think it sounds just right!

Skipper's Meeting: 9:00 a.m.

First possible race start Saturday, December 13, 2008, 9:45 a.m. BE READY!

It's a good idea to arrive early (8:00 am), to get an easy parking spot at South Beach City of Fort Lauderdale Lot, (Residents free with City Parking Card, $10 others for all day parking) and get rigged up.

See you there,

Ron
