    That may be true about most of them, Not Skip D. upstanding dude... i'm guessing he was against all the post regatta antics.

    Florence

    I have two thoughts, on Wednesday eve/night, there was an eyewall replacement cycle starting, with the eye loosing shape and starting to wobble off center. At the same time there were 2 or so injections of dry air bands . The storm seemed to lose intensity and grow in diameter. On thursday, the storm track progress slowed from ~15 kts to ~5kts. This caused a churning in place of the surface and upwelling of some colder water, further degrading the storm. Either of these scenarios is difficult to forecast in advance, other to say it's a possibility. The NHC would rather error on alarmist side.

    new flag though, so it's either old vid or someone replaced the flag... by the looks of the current Sat images, the platform should be experiencing much worse conditions than shown. i'm guessing archived vid rolling.

    First boat at age 50

    T, As important as learning your boat and how to sail her, is the weather. you should make it a daily habit (whether you're sailing that day or not) to know what's going on in the atmosphere. what's the pressure, wind direction/speed, fronts approaching, what do the clouds look like, are they changing. Immerse yourself in weather information, evening news, web sites. etc... you will find the more comfortable and better you are knowing what the weather is doing the more you will enjoy your sailing future...
