Looks like some major carnage going on in the SSR. 60-70% of the boats have With Drawn, 15 of about 60 registered are still out there in storm force winds........

I'll stick to being in my house thank you very much.

just read on sailing anarchy, that the coast guard was on 16 announcing that the RC has abandoned the race, all boats to seek a safe harbor, and radio in when docked.

Gust to 50 here on the port of edmonds weather site. not sure what the WSFerries are reporting will look at that site in a moment.

Sand heads and Halibut Bank are both reporting 50 kt gusts. At least they have something resembling daylight out there.

Will they restart the race tomorrow?

not sure if they will do a restart or not. Some on SA would like to see a 24 hr delay in the future for days like today for this and swiftsure. Can not say I blame them, usually this kind of stuff blows thru in 12-24 hrs, so a 24 hr delay is not always that big a deal, other than jobs, vacation time etc for racers.

Off the race web site position page.

Last Known Yacht Position
Pan Pan 16:03 WVYC Race Committee has abandonded the Southern Straits Race. All vessels still racing should head for safe harbour and check in with WVYC vy Phone or radio to confirm receiving the cancellation call.

True but systems like this tend to come in pairs as well, especially this time of year. NOAA's 24 hour forecast shows another from the Aleutians coming to about 45N by 130W, though not as deep as today's.

I think this could be the first time they've actually called the Straits race.. Pretty crazy conditions out there.. Our son's crew on a Melges 32 bailed before the start, barely able to make headway trying to get upwind to the start area.

Ferry cancellations everywhere... I was bummed that we decided not to go to the Islands but now, it looks like the right move. Hope Dilly Bar reconsidered their plans too.

Wa St ferries have a few runs on delay to cancel for the PT/Keystone ferries. I was just down at Edmonds, appeared to me that the Edmonds ferry was not running, look at website, they have a 15 min delay. When I walk the dog it is for about 30-45 min or so, I did not see one ferry come or go, usually see at least one switch during that time. Marina is reporting some 50 knot gust a big ago.

Glad this did not hit last friday, the trip south thru the locks into lk washington would NOT have been fun, ie probably not done for the race over the weekend.

Latest news, a 30' boat Inciser sunk, all 6 on board were rescued. 6 boats still out as of 5:30pm local time, but all 6 heading for safe harbors.

Faster, do you know anything about that boat, other than a 30' custom race boat?

Crap!... Incisor is a custom Currie design, same fellow that designed/built the Mount Gay 30 "Bullitt" (now in WA, I believe) - Incisor was actually only 26 or 27 feet plus a small prod. I know these guys, or at least some of them.

Will have to try to find out more... stand by.
