Saturday morning, actually. Participants arrive at beach tomorrow to set up their craft and check in. Weather is looking nice for the first several days.

Weather is looking nice. Moderate temps. Light easterlies, probably an afternoon sea breeze...very similar to 2014. Looks like the leaders will hit a moderate easterly down in Florida Bay, and probably have to take the long way around. Probably not a record-breaking year. A front may catch up with the tail end of fleet, also as in '14.

I just spoke with the office at Ft. Desoto park. The lady said the gate will be open early before 7:00 am but she did not know how early. I plan to be down there around 6-ish.

I'm taking my Adventure Island to Anna Maria Sound and Passage Key Inlet, launching around 7 from the ramp by the Hwy 64 bridge. I hope to catch the sailors who are heading into the Gulf then the ICW crowd.

I expect to get pretty wet and will be using a waterproof camera most of the time. If I'm in a protected area I might use the phone cam to put pics on the FB Watertribe page.

I was down there this aft. Ran into SailBlueH2O. Saw Mister Moons boat but he and Zero The Hero weren't around. Boat looked ready to go. I'll text Steam a few pics to post.

Sew-sew (Randy Smythe) well out in front. Spawn's Spot hasn't updated in an hour, I'm guessing they're in the main pack of multihulls. Wind seems 8-10 easterly. Should be flat water and fast ride...I suspect wind will die before noon, couple hour wait for sea-breeze. Headed out the door shortly to hop on a powerboat to Stump Pass near cl pt 1.

SewSew is hauling ass. Hes way ahead. Spawn finally updated, they're side by side for 2nd with a Hobie 16 with kite. Tornado (SwampMonkee) isn't showing up, they're in there somewhere. Mister Moon and Zero the Hero about 12th, in main pack of sailboats. Kayakers making good time down the ICW.
