Taking a preliminary look at the weather for a week of sailing starting on the 7th. My usual sources show a North Swell building on the 9th for 4 or 5 days. Plan your itinerary accordingly. Looks like about 6 feet.

Looks like the high seas will be starting Friday - 6 to 8 feet occasionally up to 10 feet

Just back from CGB and The Elmtones play tonight! Not one boat in the bay although the swell was barely having any effect on the anchorage..come on it for a rocking good evening!

I wish you had posted this earlier! Went to Diamond Key when we saw no boats in there with the binoculars.
