Since nobody is sailing, maybe instead we could have a contest to see whose forecast is worst. Here's the one for my local area:

A little ambiguous since a bad forecast could mean the difference between actual and forecast. How about the worst actual. Here's an example - Ned's Point, the day before a cold front.

Fair enough. Here's my wind observations summary from a recent weekend morning.

Don't need a table to tell ......there is no wind..
We haven't heard from the Hatteras crowd because they are hogging it all again.

Sounds like a High might be starting up

i've been watching the s.padre readings, and they seem to be having upper teens to low twenties all summer so far. surf cam looked good after last tropical system for awhile too. about 2000 miles from the east coast though.

Yep, its been windy here on the OBX!

SW near daily riding everything from SeaLions to small kits. Only thing lacking has been chest+ sized surf, but will take the 80 degree crystal clear tropical-like ocean side water! Very Happy

I think we need to do a large sacrifice for the NE. Not much of anything here on LI. At least we don't have to deal with whitey

There have been shark tourneys off LI for decades. At least since I was a kid in the '50s.

Here's a report from 2010 Montauk shark tournament, where a Great White Shark was taken by ... mistake.

Fortunately, LI doesn't yet have the "seal for a meal" program completely up and running. Give them time. Wink
