It is hot...like Africa Hot here in Long Beach (94' F) and is supposed to be hotter tomorrow and Thursday.  On the plus side that means bikinis.  On the down side that means that the race course is smack dab in the middle of the offshore/onshore transition zone.   Should be an interesting FARR 40 championship....

Hot enough to boil a monkey's bum.

 

I don't miss working in Wilmington at all.

 

At least they're all in the same boat.

The key will be finding the transition edges.

There won't be a lot of separation between the top teams.

 

The real key will be getting off the start line cleanly,  going fast in a straight line and getting around the corners quickly.

I'm pretty sure I don't want to see most of these sailors in bikinis! The kite trimmer with the 44D's has a hairy chest (and back)!

Other than the people spending or making the money in this regatta does anyone give a shit? So far only thing mentioned is the heat and ugly dudes in thongs.

The real key is figuring out how to legally pay amateurs. Probably a lot of gardeners sailing this week.

The high for today could be over 100' F.

At 2PM it is 99'F in Seal Beach (The course is right offshore). Wind SSW-SW @14G 16. The water temps are already into the mid 60s in most areas and approaching 70 degrees in the San Pedro Channel between Long Beach and Catalina. It doesn't get much better than this with relative humidity at 6%.
