Moving South

After Isaac last week here in St Maarten I go South now monday 1200, be back in Decembre probably..
Isaac was no problem, found a nice spot with other boats between the mangroves, a good safe spot btw

I'll probably be in Grenada friday or something like that, not to much wind, but enough to be in Grenada before the next bad weather comes through the islands next weekend..

hmmm funny

Satureday morning and now this is the weather forecast I see now..
10 hrs ago the forecast was that the 'depression' would go north beforeit would be here, now hte forecast is it will go right through the Carieb..  One thing is U never want to be on the north side of the eye of the depressinon since there the winds are the hardest..

So St Maarten does not look good, even Grenada gets wind, only Curacao looks good now..

It is ONLY a prediction, and still all sorts of final outcome possible since they are computer models etcetc..
But am preparing the boat, put laser on deck, mountain bike under deck, get water and stow everything inside so everything will stay on its place when sailing..

Training/coaching LSRs with Robbie Ferron and Andrea and then ..  we will see.


If u open that one and then click on the 94L it shows some 'possible predicted' paths of whatever may come..

Good in St Maarten.. Ernesto passes lower

We now have Tropical Storm Ernesto as reconnaissance aircraft found a stronger storm than what was thought. Barbados and the Lesser Antilles should be aware that tropical storm conditions with wind gusts of 60+ mph, heavy rainfall and very rough seas are likely from tonight into Friday.
