I think the only thing we can guarantee is that the conditions will improve after a few morning showers. So pack those warm clothes and be prepared for a tough day as the big decisions are stay close to the coast, stay offshore and the tide and how to get to the finish line. We have a competitive fleet of 21 boats so it could be anyone race.
The current forecast has north westerly winds for Friday with a front crossing Victoria on Friday evening, which will have us in a south westerly flow for the start. High pressure will dominate after this so the winds will decrease in strength and the wind could become variable.
|Rain hopefully not for too long|

Approaching the finish line could be challenging
