Thread: Johnstone Bay Weather Question

  1. #1

    Default Johnstone Bay Weather Question

    I would like run to Johnstone Bay out of Seward tomorrow, but I see that the NOAA forecast is predicting 15 knot westerlies, meaning of course that I would be returning against the prevailing wind. I have experience in the area with the more usual south easterlies. Should I come up with a plan B? Thanks everyone!

    Haha, thanks! Yes, the Cape Clear to Gore Point forecast is the one I was looking at. We'll probably decide tomorrow morning depending on the conditions on the water.

    I think that it will stack up less from the west than from the southeast.

    I re-read your question.......sorry.
