Hey Dawg,

Good luck with the trip. Just curious, what's the route for your 1st day out from Hyannis?

Stay Warm and Dry. Try and get some rest between now and departure, it's always hard before a trip but it helps during those dog watches.

Looks like you'll have plenty of NW winds starting Thursday night..and into Friday.....after some initial SW winds on Thursday morning. Looks like you'll see 5-9's or more? Diminishing on friday to 4-7 That's Noaa's offshore forecast from Hudson Canyone to Baltimore Canyon.

Thanks Tempest

The captain's plan is to head southwest between Elizabeth Islands and Marthas Vineyard. We should have a favorable current for about 6 hours. Depending on the weather, we may spend a night in Block Island. If the wind is favorable we will head southeast {I meant southwest} or West by southwest along the coast of Long Island.

The captain is a retired professor and knowledgeable, i should able to benefit from this trip and beyond. I am trying to do as much homework possible and hoping to contribute to the trip as much as I can.

Just curious, why would you head southeast??? West by Southwest along the LI coast makes some sense, but heading south or southwest would make far more sense than heading southeast, given the current forecast.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hey Dawg,

Hopefully, you won't have to motor into a head wind all day Thursday.
After that, looks like you'll get NW and W winds for a bit.

If you can hold a good course through your shifts and remain healthy...you will be contributing your weight in gold!

Actually I worry about that too because the westerly wind. I have suggested to Captain to skip going through Elizabeth Island and Marthas Vineyard and just head south or southwest. But it is the captain's decision, I will be happy either way.

I have never gotten motion sickness. But this time, I don't want to take chances. I will apply a scopolamine patch tomorrow morning for a try-out. Hopeful I don't need suppository

Because of the weather forecast has changed. We delay our departure until Friday morning.

Currently Thursday wind at 7 am will be like this:


Friday will be like this. It will be like this (Northwest to Westerly) until late Monday.


If anyone has more reliable forecast please point it out to me. We don't have much room to move our schedules.

Everything I checked seems to agree with passageweather...so leaving on a friday... hmm... that's supposed to be bad luck. Might make more sense to leave on thursday, even if it is just to pull into cuttyhunk or such... to avoid the bad karma associated with friday departures.

SD, don't worry, I have it covered. There is always exceptions. I checked with the Feng Shui Master before talking to the Captain. The Qi is very strong around the vessel. According to the Almanac, it is one of the best departure days. We are in luck

I don't know, Thursday's wind looks ok for a trip down Vinyard sound if it stays northwest. Gusty in the afternoon. If your course is 233 m you should be able to sail anything that comes from above 278 ?

Easy to say that sitting in my recliner...;-) I guess you have to see what thursday brings
