|February 13th Weather Update|
Yesterday was a very breezy cool day with winds from the north up to 20-25 kts at times. We operated in "Captains Cove" all day and the seas were only 1-3 ft with very little ships motion. It was a bright, sunny but very cool day.....sweaters and jackets please....
The weather will take a complete turn around today. Winds are down to about 10 kts now and will soon switch around to the south at 5-10 kts. The entire week is forecast at south and southwest winds 5-10 kts. The seas (waves) will be 1-2 feet.
Pick any day this week to sail with us. The weather will be great!!
Nautical weather terms: "Veering" is when the wind changes direction and moves around the compass in a clockwise directions....say fro North to East.
This was very important to Mariners in the pre-satellite days as this indicated what the change in weather would be in the near future. A backing wind (very generally) meant clearing weather and a passage of the front...and a veering wind meant the opposite....
