|February 25th Weather Update|
Friday's cruises were a little taste of summer...warm temperatures and southerly winds....made for good cruising both the AM and PM cruises.
This morning I am on the bridge looking at cloudy weather and northerly winds....Mother nature can change her mood quickly!
Not to worry I did say northerly winds....so back to Captains Cove today. The winds will be north and the forecast says 15-20 kts. But the waves in Captain's Cove will be 1-2 ft. Come Join us for a great Saturday afternoon cruise.
Nautical Terms: Water Spout: This is a mini Tornado at sea. (but with winds only 30-40kts) We often see them along with thunder storms.....They are an interesting Phenomenon. Some of us would intentionally in the path of one to get a free fresh water wash down (shower for the ship) as they always have heavy rain within them. Well the truth is we would chase them out of boredom on a long Ocean passage...but the shower idea sounds good anyway....
