Weekend weather… guesstimation

bbc weather

Just look at the gaping hole around Singapore – also explains why the temperatures have been soaring over the last few days! It’s not looking good this weekend but Saturday will be better than Sunday! It’s light and variable and the weekly pattern has been… light Northeasterly in the morning with the wind backing to the North before midday and then fading over lunch. It returns in the late afternoon but nothing to jump for.

If you’ve been sailing the last series of races and clinics, perhaps now is the weekend for a break! Looks like a big LOW over the Philippines right now so when that moves west a bit we might get the tail end of it. (Next weekend for the Formula Champ’s would be good). Looking at the chart above, Bali appears to still be having wind – go Henry.

I’d also say here that the 24.3 knots we ‘set’ on the Nacra 20 will be the record for the season!..

About prosailing

In Southeast Asia a long time and all the while, sailing cats. But the cat love-affair began when I finished building my first catamaran at age 15... "never again". After building 2 more Formula 16 cats in Malaysia it's really 'never again'. Now we have a large fleet of high-tech speed machines including the Nacra 20 Carbon. Then we decided to spread our wings a little more and imported the Corsair Dash 750. Now we are well on the way to establishing a Coastal One Design Dash Class. As a test bed, we had 4 Dashes take part in the Neptune Regatta and now the plans are rolling out.

  1. Mate it is howling here, been out most of this week in strong winds and flat flat water, behind the reef 🙂 Eat your heart out!
    Bali is runing out of fuel because of the big swells runing, shuting down all the domestic ships and ferries. See you next weekend.
    May the wind Gods return to you!
