It is unlikely that we will be able to cross the Gulf Stream to the Bahamas tomorrow. The wind just won't quit. The offshore forecast calls for seas of four to six feet, more than we wish to handle. My magical PredictWind app shows four-foot seas under all of its three models but shows the wave period, or time between waves, as only 4.5 seconds. So these are not gentle four-foot swells eight or 10 seconds apart but steep four-foot waves that would slam us up and down. Interestingly, my forecaster Chris Parker shows that a messy eastbound crossing might be available Friday or Sunday. We'll see, and will continue to watch and keep you posted.
