Models indicate Hurricane Michael is enroute. With recent preparations, Nautica is positioned to ride-out the winds in her temporary slip.
|Standing atop Monte Grappa in Italy wondering if S/V Nautica will be ok this time around.|
Winds should be coming from the East and Northeast again yet the eye's direction looks to be heading directly for our location. There's only so much prep one can do in these situations. Once she is securely tied-to, we simply have to wait our turn for nature's arrival.
Just as Skipper Tommy had refitted her with sails, Michael's arrival surfaced, and the sails have to come down again. One of the constant worries is flying debris, and one has to always wonder if a neighboring slip occupant has done enough for their vessel to keep others around safe and sound. We'll have to wait and see about that.
Keeping fingers crossed and watching spaghetti models, hoping that we all will manage through another hurricane with minimal disruption and damage to everyone here at the club and all around town.
