Here's the text of an email that Erik Beale sent me:
Looks like heavy air on the way,current prediction is for tropical storm Cosme to make landfall on Maui Saturday A.M.
Potential sustained 40 knot windspeeds at Sprecklesville, possibly gusting to 60 knots. Wave height 3m. In other words perfect open ocean speed-sailing conditions!
I don't know Erik... if the wave height is really going to be 3m, I'd rather be sailing Hookipa... we'll see!
On Sunday there will also be the paddling race (standup and lay down paddleboards) Maliko-Kahului and it's going to be interesting for those guys.
Michelle is going to do it using my Starboard. With gusts up to 60 knots, I'll make sure she wears a good leash...
