First Race of the Season “Blown Away”

The first race of the Spring Whitecap Series was cancelled due to Gale Warnings in Admiralty inlet.

For once the Weather Service was correct.  A quick check of local reporting stations at 4 pm. showed the ferry dock reporting average southerly winds in the high 20’s with gusts in the high 30’s and wind-shifts around 30 deg.  The Mill also reported wind southerly in the high 20’s to high 30’s but with an occasional gust well over 40.  Wind-shifts at the mill were as much as 60 deg. and very rapid.

All-in-all a beautiful day to watch the water from a suitable watering hole and not be out testing your endurance and your boat’s weak points.
