Friday 9 11 20 morning call

Yesterday's downwind run was captured by Jason Hall. He's putting a lot of time into filming, editing and posting content on his youtube channel.

3am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
2.1ft @ 14s from 197° (SSW)

2.1ft @ 15s from 192° (SSW)
1.1ft @ 13s from 197° (SSW)
Nice numbers at the buoys (the collage of the fetches were posted on Wednesday), check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
3.2ft @ 6s from 76° (ENE)
2.9ft @ 9s from 20° (NNE)

NW swell is gone, flat everywhere.

Wind map at noon (the other ones can be found at link n.-2 of GP's meteo websites list in the right column).

Fetches map (circles legend: red: direct aim, blue: angular spreading, black: blocked, yellow: apparent direct aim, but out of the great circle ray map, so not 100% sure).
North Pacific (about 4 days travel time from the NW corner of the North Pacific):

South Pacific (about 7 days travel time from east/west of New Zealand):

Morning sky.
