Just looked out the window and saw Xsbank going by... In between the weekend storms.

Hi Spy! Enormous 6 knots SOG, spray over roof. Interesting swells by Grief Point! Lovely day.

I'll send the admiral out to wave a tea towel!

Well our big winds were a no show. We had winds in the 30's in the late morning but they never got as big as was predicted. By 6:00 they had died to a light breeze and by 7:00 were calm.


We were at a party at the club last night and afterward stayed on the boat. IT was quiet all night and only kicked up a bit this morning to about 15mph.


Where else but a weatherman job can you be SO wrong, SO often and still keep your job?

That had to be one of the most magnificent events in nature to witness. A future master of flight learning the basics of flying in the wind for the first time. "So cool" is right!!

Looking forward to the videos that you must have gotten on your iphone.

It was like watching a 3 year old on his first pair of skates, maybe even with more affection. The best part was watching him try to be stopped still in the gusting wind. So much concentration. Like he was standing one legged on a clothesline. Incredible.


Is that what the crank on the side of my phone is for? Makin' videos?

Well outside my area.

Oatmeal on the stove to fortify against the first Fall blow. Third pot of coffee. Went swimming and kayaking yesterday, today all the sailboats have let go their stern ties as the oysters start appearing with the tide fall. Full moon tonight but we won't see it. Wonder if the oysters will cut the stern line?
I took my boat up to Tenedos Bay on September10th and returned on the 22nd. We had a northerly headwind of about 35 Kts from Patos to Nanaimo, and seas of 5 to 6 Ft. Video attached.

Hi Paul, you should get yourself some RainX then you wouldn't need to have your wipers on steady. The stuff is magic on glass windows.

Whadd'uh take me for ... I offered that as interesting conversation not a product review.
ArmorAll has the same effect.
I have no wipers.

I use it on my cars. Never thought about using on the boat. Great idea. I use the combination cleaner with the rain x included.

Nothing personal Eric, not too many of old folks left to remember Bull Duram and roll you own days outside of old black and white movies.

I agree with Eric, the gray hull on the Nordic is attractive.
