Hey thanks!! Have been in Portsmouth/Norfolk Virginia for 2 days, having fun but want to be on the water! Find out today if we can depart tomorrow, pesky weather!!! Glad I built in 3 extra days at the end for what ifs. Any weather experts out there to give me a report?

Does not look good for the next 48 hours. Gale moving up from the south that will generate opposing winds over the stream for the next few days. You do not want to cross the stream with the wind opposing the current. Winds should move south west by late Monday or Tuesday after that system passes. Rest of the week however looks close to perfect. Light southerly winds to cross the stream then NW for a day or so outside to push you south. Could get another cold front by Saturday though.

OK I can see that. If things proceed at the same rate you will hit the stream early evening after the wind moves SW. Stream will still be a bit bumpy but at least not straight up and down. Once outside, the high moving in behind this system should push you southward off the port quarter for a couple of days.

If you have some time because of the late departure, go and say hello to our friends Bill and Rosemary on Crazy Horse. They've done the event before and also sailed around the world in company with Jeannius on another World Cruising Club event.

Good luck with the trip.

I will certainly look for crazy horse in the morning. Have met many nice people during our 4 long days waiting for this storm to pass. I am excited to get this race started at 1130hr. I brought one dry bag of clothing with me and its contents have exploded all over my hotel room so its time to repack! I'll shout out when we arrive in Marsh Harbor on Friday, thanks for all the well wishes!
