Maybe Hermine will be helping out with the local drought this Sunday/Monday.And hopefully not messing up all the events on the water too much.

Tropical storms are not allowed to make landfall here during Schooner Festival. Sorry about the lawn.

It looks like Monday for Hermine remnants having an effect here.

Is there still schooner stuff going on Labor Day? I think it is all Saturday and Sunday.

The swells will probably too heavy outside of the harbor, even if rain and wind is unlikely. -- peregrine

Often they race to someplace else on Monday, but our events wind up on Sunday.

The Sunday Races were cancelled in 1997 or 1998 due to high winds and seas as the far northern edge of a hurricane approached. Only weeks earlier the Schooner Adventure had her sails blown out in a sudden squall. A New York boat brought a spare set of sail so the Adventure could race: I saw her out on a trial run and the Adventure looked like a 15 year old in his 5 year old brothers suit.

The storm turned away from us but instead of racing the Ernestina's and Adventure's crews put on a great Sea Chanty performance while rafted together at the dock. I will refrain from showing video.

Hermine (as in Pauline) hit land fall in Florida at 1AM this morning and was classified as a low grade Category I hurricane. I hope the Schooner Columbia did okay because the Yard it was recently built is near landfall. Also at another nearby boat yard the Schooner Alabama was built back in the 1920s.

Live updates (LINK MIGHT NOT WORK NOW):



======================

GMHC M-G (Sch Adventure) should have* the Sea Chanty video and some rare footage of Capt Leo Hynes using a cane to poke at the blown out sails as they laid on the dock - "shouldn't have used them". He was the former fishing captain of the F/V Adventure.

*There should be a shelf of stuff.

Seems like they have been tweeking the expected path to the west more and more.And it looks like a slow-mover once it gets up our way.


I guess that is good as long as it all happens after this weekend.

National Weather Service just posted a Tropical Storm Watch at 11am from Sandy Hook NJ to Watch Hill RI.   I was planning on fishing on one of the party boats this weekend , but the marine forecast has been all over the place since yesterday morning.    Seas are expected to build going into tomorrow night and up to 9-11 ft. by Sunday night, higher on the cape and south shore.

My second most favorite thing about weeks like this...
next to spaghetti storm tracks, is the term

Thanks for the reminder! However there's no mention of snow, "Bread & Milk" will have to wait.

The Weather Channel people talk more and more
in terms of a total stall of this thing up our way.

Or at least a very slow mover.

Chief Meteorological Officer DM, have you checked with CSO Taylor to see if there is any connection between global warming and this hurricane?
