Cosme

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...

arseholes, this does not look like sunday is going to be the pleasant cruize I was hoping for!! The other day was bad enough with a small north and east swell together chopping up the ocean. Plan B is to sit on my arse with the paddle in the air like a sail. I'll smoke it if it's 60 knots!!

Maliko...isn't that Famous for the number of Sharks swimming there??
Looks like its gonna be a interesting Peddle race for the lay down padlers.

Now, that's something that will motivate Meesh not to fall...

What's the daugther in law thing?
