Re: Weather Forecasts (Chesapeake in this case)

Thank you all for the additional feedback and info. As for the localized SCA parameters - I learned something new again. I do Google just about everything, but this didn't pop up.

Three hours to sailtime now, so we'll see how it goes. I do like the idea of putting up the full main and gauging the jib. Thankfully, I can just furl/unfurl the genny as needed. It'll help to have crew onboard this time, too. I took out a Catalina 27 on Cinco de Mayo, and that was a bit of a pain to single-hand that day.

For what it's worth, I'll post how it went afterwards - assuming I remember to do so, as the post-sail activities will involve watching the Caps in Game 7 at Calypso. (Sorry, Rangers fans)

Thanks again!
