Pretty bad comparison, comparing Nat J to a T10 regarding travel. T10 is the poor mans racer, not traveling is the norm.

In other news, 

I skipped the race across the Lake this year due to Circus being on the hard.

Got asked to race on a B36.7 for NAC out of Belmont.  Great 4 days of weather, excellent race management, excellent social activities at Belmont after racing each day.

Free beer and endless hot apps,  then daily awards each day.  

Very nice event by the Beneteau 36.7 fleet and CYC.

I think we are stuck between 2 things.  I think we have storms, more than too much wind. \

On Friday of the Verve we had storms.  We got sent out.  Too stormy.  We bitched.  (They tried, I appreciate it)

Here, particularly, there is almost always storms with wind. 

Rarely do we have just too much wind.  

I can see the trepidation associated with an RC sending a fleet out into a potentially dangerous storm, even one that hasn't developed yet.  If the National Weather Service places us in a 'potentially unstable atmosphere' I agree with the hold, unfortunately. 

 

If there were a day with just rain and wind, I think we would get sent out; it's the risk of storms that keeps us in.  

We have some tenacious weather here, eh?
