Time to get a good telephoto lens and sit in the car and get some amazing shots instead of racing, perhaps? heh heh
Good luck!

when i was skateboarding in the 70s, we would take a bus up the hills then skate down.

With weather like this, you can find a way to get a lift upwind, then enjoy the downwind ride?

yeah, I think I'd take the day of and play tacticat.

It could be good practice for the DR. You should buy a radial rig!

If we get sleet and snow in Cabarete I'm asking for my money back.

Ah, but what were the weather predictions on the church signs in the neighborhood?

Rain, snow, sleet, 40 knot gusts it was. Not the easiest day to sail but as it wasn't a race, we could get off the water whenever we pleased (skill permitting.)

Did the Laser race take place? Are there photos anywhere...I'll bet that was wild!

We had that same forecast on Sunday in Clearwater FLA except take out the part about sleet & snow and raise the temp by about 30 degrees. Good Radial practice in 25 kts gusting to 30....been awhile!
