Wed 8/6 9 am: Gooseberry Point (MA) Level 4
« on: August 05, 2014, 01:32:50 PM »

Dave - let's plan on Gooseberry Point (MA), 9 am tomorrow (Wed 8/6).  At this time, thunderstorm activity is predicted after 1 pm, so if we launch at 9 am sharp we'll have 4 hours (assuming the forecast holds). 
Gooseberry gives us options east and west so we can get back to the launch site quickly if T-storms move in early.

This will be a Level 4 trip due to predicted large, long-period swells from Bertha (NWS has posted a Small Craft Advisory for Hazardous Seas).  Helmets required, towbelts & radios strongly recommended.   

I will post Go/No Go/ on the changes/cancellation message board by 7 am tomorrow.

Hey folks, please let me know if you're thinking about joining us.  We'd like to have at least 3 people.  Thanks!

Trip is a go.  Thunder forecast moved an hour earlier (noon)  but still only slight chance/chance.
