Better than expected – I think that is a good description of the day.  Despite continued strong breezes, the scuba and sailing programs continued.  Good attitude is ALWAYS the key; good attitude by the staff helps the adults maintain a good attitude.  If the staff and adults have a positive outlook the Scouts are much more likely to have fun despite adversities.  I know you know that, but did you know that 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance?

One of our Scuba Adventure adult leaders, Ross Quenzer, shot this video on Tuesday while diving a site named Ham.  Nice conditions on a nice reef during not so nice weather.


The conference staff members will spend the day cleaning rooms, stripping and remaking beds, and washing linens and towels.  The good news is they don’t have another conference for several days.


I guess I’m making up for posting late yesterday.  It’s 02:00, I wasn’t sleeping, so i thought i would get this knocked out.  Maybe I can sleep until 06:30 to make up for being awake now.

The wind crescendoed through the late afternoon until peaking at 11 pm and has dissipated a little since then:

4 pm – E 11-12 knots
5 pm – E 14-16 knots
6 pm – E 13-14 knots
7 pm – ENE 15-16 knots
8 pm – E 18-20 knots
9 pm – E 21-23 knot
10 pm – E 22-24 knots
11 pm – ESE 24-28 knots
Midnight – ESE 22-27 knots
1 am – SE 23 – 25 knots

We are expecting a low this morning of 73° and a high of 84° with a 20% chance of rain and “east to southeast winds near 20 knots early…decreasing to near 15 knots. Seas subsiding to 2 to 4 feet”.  Regarding sea state, the NWS site says, “SEAS ARE GIVEN AS SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT…WHICH IS THE AVERAGE HEIGHT OF THE HIGHEST 1/3 OF THE WAVES. INDIVIDUAL WAVES MAY BE MORE THAN TWICE THE SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT.”

Good night.  (Good morning?)  Regardless, back to bed.
