Looks pretty close to perfect! Maybe a little more wind than one would expect for July but looks great.

This is my most useful wind site - from Two Brothers rocks in Pillsbury Sound so very accurate local info for the STT-STJ sailing.

https://ww.sailflow.com/windandwhere.iws?regionID=260&siteID=3876

Combined with the swell report from this buoy should give good planning

“Sailflow pro” gives actual live wind data from scattered anemometers. Off the top of my head, there is one on Buck island amongst several others. The live data arrows are a different color then the forecasted ones.

Have fun on Always Sunny. Be sure to give us a trip report.

So, Coral Bay has one dingy dock, no trash disposal, junk yard atmosphere on shore and on the water. No plans for improvement. Think Ill give it a miss.
