Field exam postponed :(


Due to strong winds and big swells, the 2012 first year exam that was supposed to take place at Race Rocks this morning was cancelled and will be rescheduled for a later date.

At 6:30 am Mike was observing winds up to 24 knots at Race Rocks and given the forecast for increasing wind (see below), we decided to postpone the field exam.

Forecast Issued 04:00 AM PDT 09 May 2012 for Juan de Fuca Strait:

Gale warning in effect.
Wind west 20 to 30 knots increasing to 30 to 40 this afternoon then diminishing to 20 near midnight. Wind becoming west 10 to 20 Thursday morning then increasing to 20 to 30 Thursday afternoon. Wind diminishing to west 10 to 15 Thursday evening.
