B&G Simrad 60 Postponement

02 Aug 2008

Unfortunately the weather forecast for this afternoon has forced the postponement of the B&G Simrad 60 by 24hours to 0900 Sunday 3rd August. There should still be plenty of breeze but we won't have to deal with the front expected this afternoon. A key factor in this decision was the wind direction being Northerly which will generate a bigger seastate and the fact most boats would be on a lee shore when the worst of the weather is due to hit this afternoon. Tomorrow looks a much better option.

For the Manukau and Waitemata Harbours:
Northwest 20 knots, rising to 25 knots gusting 35 knots this morning and to northerly 35 knots gusting 45 knots this afternoon. Tending northwest this evening. Moderate sea becoming rough this morning and very rough this afternoon. Poor visibility in showers, some heavy and squally.
