This is the view from the inside of the tube. Photo and action by Loch Eggers.
I don't have photos of the contest at the Lahaina harbor, but here's how little Marley decompressed and got over the disappointment for a loss in his second heat.
3am significant buoy readings and discussion
3.1ft @ 18s from 189° (S)
3.7ft @ 18s from 186° (S)
Here's another bomb at the harbor. I better get going...
3.5ft @ 5s from 87° (E)
All signs of NW energy are going and with that small size and easterly direction of a windswell the north shore is going to be flat today.
North Pacific has a very weak N fetch, but it's close enough to possible send something in a couple of days.
South Pacific has a couple of small/narrow fetches.
