TROPICAL WEATHER

Tropical Storm Cosme has melted away into the Pacific.  But Invest 96E has popped up in the same general area that spawned Invests 90-95E.

You may remember that one of those systems fizzled out crossing Mexico but the remnants reformed and became Tropical Storm Andrea which contributed to nearly 3 weeks of less than ideal weather at the Florida Sea Base and caused flooding and wind damage in northern Florida.  Another became Hurricane Barry.  While Invest 96E poses no immediate threat to the Florida Sea Base, the larger weather systems that have been contributing to this eastern Pacific activity is gradually moving to the east.  We have to remain vigilant in watching the Caribbean side of Mexico and Central America for severe weather development in the near future.  If you read this blog from time to time you know I am a proponent of trip interruption insurance.  Just saying …… Better safe than sorry …… Be Prepared!

STAFF

Working at the Florida Sea Base can be grueling; here’s proof.

Prepare to be boarded!!!  First Mate Michael Cochran and Captain Christy Clemenson are obviously overworked.  There is no time for fun at the Florida Sea Base.  They must be hallucinating from dehydration.

Florida Sea Base Sailing Director, Captain Luke Knuttel is so overworked that he was out chasing rainbows.  Not only did he capture the rainbow, but in the foreground is S/V Misty Shoals, the official ghost ship of the Florida Sea Base Coral Reef Sailing fleet.

We, the collective staff, are having a good time.  And why not?  We facilitate memories that will last a lifetime.  Not a bad gig.

LOCAL WEATHER

There has been no change for the past few days.  We have a decent chance of rain daily, lows around 80, highs around 90, wind 10-15 knots.
