Re: I've become very concerned about the weather...

Yeah, I was at the start of the second one, where we floated around for 3 hours waiting for wind before going back in. This third one they at least started, but the wind was much lighter south of Seattle and few boats made it to the point. There is a long thread about this on Sailing Anarchy.

Hopefully the SYC Tri-Island has better luck with the weather. It looks like they get more people signing up for the casual/cruiser class so I'm planning on racing in that series. The CYC CSS only had one casual/cruiser boat per race, which isn't much of a race...
