WEATHER SUMMARY //

  • A moderate SW wind in place at the time of writing is expected to veer WSW and build a bit by the start of the race day.
  • Winds will remain largely in the mid-to-upper teens through mid-afternoon.
  • Though there can be fresher righty gusts around any showers, and lulls in the wind behind them.
  • So the most consistent wind will occur during the early afternoon, after showers taper off but before the wind turns to be blowing offshore.
  • Even as winds start to veer more W to NW during the second half of the afternoon, they are expected to persist at 10+ kts.
  • There could be some periods of sunshine later this afternoon, which would encourage mixing and some gusts.
  • By that point in the day, winds aloft will be largely in line with the surface, so they will be uni-directional.
  • Mostly cloudy, scattered showers in the morning, righty gusts into the low 20s. High temperatures around 20oC. Seas up to 3-5 ft, choppy.
  • There will be fresher righty gusts around any showers and mixing down during the afternoon.
  • As winds veer to be blowing offshore, they will start to decrease and lulls in the wind immediately behind any showers.

CONSERVATION //

The Great Britain Sail Grand Prix is expected to gather a large spectator fleet during the event. SailGP races for a better future, championing a world powered by nature. As the ocean is our race track, we are passionate about protecting it and highlighting some of the local marine life challenges faced in the home waters of Plymouth During our Season 2 racing a whale was sighted during the racing and as such we’d like to ask all boaters to exercise extreme caution when on the Sound today.

We recommend that you familiarise yourself with the Marine and Coastal Code and should you spot any injured marine wildlife please contact the BDMLR rescue hotline on 01825 765546 (24hr).

NOTICE TO BOATERS //

Should you need to empty your black water tanks please do so 12 nautical miles offshore (Annex IV of MARPOL) or use facilities at local marinas to pump out raw sewage.
