7 September AM update

The wind is blowing 25-30 out of the NE this am.  With a long fetch from Genoa the seas have become very rough, building to 2-3 meters off Porto Cervo.  The Race Committee announced a three hour postponement last night.  First warning signals now at 1430 vs 1130.  We are the sixth start today at 15:30.  The race committee is going to try hard to get a race off but the forecast doesn't look good.

Porto Cervo Marina is pretty exposed in this wind and wave direction.  For safety reasons Tery and some of the crew took Prospector to Portisco, a more protected harbor, 9 nautical miles south of Porto Cervo.  Crew breakfast has been changed to crew brunch, minus the alcohol in case we do go racing.
