    Getting lots of requests for delivery assistance back to the mainland as the slow moving low making its way toward the east coast is raising the CAPE values quickly and there should be plenty of fireworks this afternoon from Wilmington, NC and Northeastward to off the Maryland coast. Some adverse winds for people trying to leave Saturday through Monday as well. Be safe out there people.

    The word for this year's race is "Eddy". Find them and win.

    Depending on how big your shoes are the strategy will vary wildly. The faster boats will likely be able to sail straight down the pipe. The slower boats may find more success digging south and then using a building SWerly to get across the pond. Overall not a bad year to be sailing this race... Good luck to all. I'll post again tomorrow if time allows.

    Yes, I will do something very broad brush either Thursday night or Friday morning if possible. Between Tropical system Bud and clients doing Newport-Bermuda my plate is very full at the moment.

    Quick update on former hurricane Bud. The once mighty storm has been downgraded to a lowly tropical storm but will still have an impact on the lower Baja peninsula. He is scheduled to arrive in Cabo overnight Thursday into Friday with heavy rain and still Tropical Storm force winds. This is track is unusual this early in the season.

    Between the random Gulf Stream gyres and high pressure systems popping up around the course, I susepct this years race will put a premium on navigation and weather more than most years. Good luck everyone and have a safe a pleasant trip to paradise.

    The track remains basically the same with Cabo in the right front quadrant. We'll have to see how much more this storm winds down before landfall. Most models are in tight agreement on the track.

    Beryl will be the second named storm of the Atlantic Hurricane season whenever it decides to form. The Pacific has a different list.

    My father in law "Hurricane Bud" is struggling a bit at the moment but I think once it gets more organized it will be an over achiever just like Aletta was. She was supposed to top out at a Cat 2 and ramped to a Cat 4 pretty quickly. Cabo looks to be on the hit parade for Bud. Likely degraded significantly from his peak glory but still formidable in size.
