The forecast for the September edition of Sail Akarana isn’t looking too flash… But the team at RAYC is trucking along with the organising of the event because forecasts have proven to be wrong (and subject to change).
This is the current outlook…
Saturday: Northerly rising to 25 knots but 35 knots in the outer Gulf in the morning, becoming northwest 15 knots at night. Rain developing in the morning, some heavy falls, clearing at night.
Sunday: Northwest 15 knots but 20 knots in the outer Gulf. Showers developing, some possibly heavy.
Regardless of the weather, the crew briefing will still go ahead at the scheduled time of 0930 hours to determine the plans for the day. All skippers and crew are required to attend.
Saturday’s social activities will still go ahead! That’s the BBQ, Entertainment and All Blacks v. South Africa game from 1935 hours.
