  • Double Handed Farallones Cancelled

    DHF Cancelled - Will be Rescheduled for Later This Year

    A storm warning has now been posted for our offshore waters, for the area covering the Farallones. The forecast now
    shows winds of 30-40 knots, with gusts to 55. Furthermore, the even bigger problem is the forecast for boat-breaking
    waves. We have reviewed our course options, including the "Dogs Off Chains" course that we posted earlier in the week,
    but the reality is that even that course would put competitors in jeopardy. We cannot send the fleet offshore in these
    conditions. We love you and we want you to stay alive!

    We considered the option of an inside-the-bay course, but there is almost no wind forecast for inside the bay for
    tomorrow, and it just wouldn't be the Doublehanded Farallones Race. So we are going to reschedule the race for later
    this year. We do not have a date yet. We will be reviewing the race calendar to try to find a suitable date.

    Warmest regards,

    Javelin still decided to sail to SF buoy and see how the actual weather compares to the forecast.

    The wind was about 20 kts gusting to 28

    The waves were probably about 10-12 feet the interval between waves was as forecasted about 9 seconds
