Look for Iain and Fiona on RUFFIAN. This will be their 4th SDR(I think-2 each way). They were selling the rally at the Annapolis boat show.

They're a real anomaly for this thread(they wouldn't understand a single post). They love the SDR and carry jerry jugs on their side decks.

Been getting those as well from opc. And getting Chris Parker update and interpretation daily. Thanks gentlemen. A your site is very well done. Going to bed. Get up early drop the bride at the airport then struggle with the linear drive on the ap. Brushes wearing fast. Wasn't that difficult a trip so want to fully check it out.

I agree, synoptic charts are way more useful than GRIBs. Need a bit of knowledge about what is being shown but it is not hard to pick up and a lot more useful than knowing how to do celestial (said by someone who knows both).

Please don't depend on gribs. Synoptics are your friends. Start here: AuspiciousWorks - Communications / Yacht Management / Deliveries Worldwide

Hmmmm... Where is that coming from, is that the system currently down off Honduras? If so, I see a decent chance of a Dark 'n Stormy or two at the White Horse Tavern in your future... :-)

Again, I'd be VERY wary of that system... Eerily reminiscent of the worst pasting the Caribbean 1500 fleet ever took, 2 boats abandoned after Hurricane Mitch re-formed over Yucatan and started tracking NE. Late season systems that develop in the NW Caribbean make me very nervous, they seem very unpredictable, and often offer a major 'surprise'...

The whole damn trip was a beat. Both noaa and passage weather under estimated winds but not seas. 35 sustained was common and saw 45 multiple times. Up down up down smash.
Scuttlebutt is Monday is the likely day but will see what Chris has to say at 5p tomorrow.
Smack at some time you need to step back. Your whole argument is specious. No one forces you to do the sdr.they do offer services and discounts that are helpful. They don't mandate your take off time,who you take as crew or in what boat.
So far everyone I spoke to would do this trip at this time even if there was no 1500 or SDR.
Bogus thinking guy.
Looking forward to cruising with th 6 boats in the Outbound regatta.
O my, 6 boats sailing to the Caribbean together in the fall. They need rules,inspections,courses, fees, and permission to use their left hand instead of their right when they go potty,
Sorry smack,pissy after a couple of days with no sleep.
Great to hear from you...

That would have been a CARBON pole, right? OUCH...

Have a few stiff drinks, they're on me... :-))

Good luck, check in whenever you can...

I'm guessing he's been pretty busy of late, and has far more important things to do with his time than to keep us apprised of the latest from Hampton... And, hopefully, having plenty of fun... :-)

Not looking at this point to be the greatest of passages, weather looks a bit fluky in the wake of that low, which looks like it will move off fairly quickly... I haven't really looked at the weather until today, but if I were sitting down there right now waiting to go, I'd probably be inclined to head down inside to Beaufort, and stage from there, keeping an eye on that 96L... Not an option for the biggest boats, of course...
Ahmmm - out just posted above.

I'm glad you're finally starting to understand. The crayons seemed to help.

No worries, out. I step back, but then Jon baits me and...whaddayagonnado?

I'm really sorry about the string of nasties. I hope everything from here on is smooth for you guys.

Be safe and have fun out. And don't eat the pig!
