If I don't go down to the mountain I might have to find a ride out to see them go past Bream Head

So 1 day forecasts are 1% accurate?


No thinking
9 days 20%



5 days 50%



Today nowcasting 99% accurate

Kind of an inverse square law. Got it.

That current windy prediction is going to produce a real tactical battle.

How far can you get before it gets light?

How far can you get once it's gone light (if you stay in? or if you go a little wider?)

How far out do you want to be when it changes to N? (obviously around the corner but few will be there...)

If its a slow race the time limit may have some effect.  NOR states 1400, SIs say 1500.  Wonder which it is?

From the sailing instructions:

 

18.0 WESTHAVEN MARINA PARKING OVER LABOUR WEEKEND 18.1 Westhaven Marina is appealing for your support during this period of construction around the marina. Since the visitor carpark will be not be sufficient this year, crew will need to share or use alternative transport options. Over Labour Weekend there will be infringements issued and in some cases towing.

 

Where will we park our cars?  Point Erin pools maybe?

Are they saying that crew can't park in the white spaces on Friday?

I've run google translate over the SI's, set for special Punuku BS settings,

What they are saying is they want you to take the bus...
