An update for the Coastal Classic yacht race: ‪#‎coastalclassic‬
A cold front crosses the fleet just after 1pm tomorrow (Friday), backing and strengthening the wind. Wind barbs (knots) shown at 1km model resolution, for 10am (left hand side) and 1pm (right hand side) Friday show WSW 15-18kt winds for the start, strengthening to 28-30kt and gusty for a time with the front. Good luck to all the boats! Keep up to date with the marine forecast on VHF or http://www.metservice.com/marine-surf/recreational-marine/auckland or download the FREE marine App at http://about.metservice.com/our-company/ways-to-get-the-weather/weather-on-your-/smartphone-apps/ ^GG

Sailing the ‪#‎coastalclassic‬ on Friday? A cold front will cross the fleet early in the race, strengthening those SW winds fairly soon after the start. And keep up with the latest forecasts, since the forecast SE change later on that night/overnight up that coastline brings in some very cold air – and the risk of a pressure kick.
