Hurricane Joaquin

Hurricane Joaquin has been churning in the Caribbean for a few days and Saturday we finally felt some of the effects. It turned out to be a pleasant day, mostly sunny with drier air coming in from the NW.  The river was a bit choppy and the water looked like coffee. We had a good turnout of windsurfers; the locals plus sailors from Jupiter, Vero and even Hawaii.

West winds are alway gusty so sailing was like driving the interstate at rush hour, sometimes you are hauling and other times not so much. It's a lot more work but after a light summer of sailing it was all good.
