4:00 pm report,status qu.Still no precipitation but system still on its way.Looks like fast moving system that will bring some rain and some snow to regatta site.With the mild temps tomorrow if we get the anticipated accumulations of less then 2" we should still be good.The Canadian DN trophy is on its way and with some Gold fleet sailors coming from MI it will be hard pressed to stay in Canada.

Daniel Hearn:
Nice job, Mike!  You've worked hard to make this happen, and have been very transparent about what you've got to offer.  If it were not for a parental care issue I have to take care of this weekend, I'd be there.  Wishing you a great regatta.
