Rain Date

Here is the latest on a rain date.

We will look at the NWS Forecast on Thursday afternoon at the 4-5pm update.

Winds greater than 20 knots for the BONITA BEACH TO ENGLEWOOD OUT 20 NM forecast will call the tournament. If we call the tournament it will be rescheduled for May 14-16 weekend.

For now it looks like the east coast will have 2-4 ft seas and the West coast will have 2-4 ft seas out to 20 NM and 4-6 ft seas out 20-60 NM. Not the best of conditions but doable.

Remember, that if conditions seem unsafe to the Captain of the vessel the trip should be aborted. We surely don't recommend boating in conditions too aggresive for a Captain's vessel and equipment.
