|Sailing in the light rain on Friday at race start|
|Dark'N'Stormy weather on Friday|
The inshore racing went on as scheduled at 11 a.m., but it is unclear if the winds will allow any sailing later into the day, when small craft advisories are forecast to be posted. Winds could reach 30 miles per hour Friday afternoon, and with cloudy and wet weather, the temperatures are only in the 50's. Sailors were dressed in full foul weather gear and it felt cold out on the water. Saturday and Sunday are forecast to be warmer and sunnier. The Friday evening Beach Party begins at 6 p.m. sponsored by Gosling's Rum, Vineyard Vines and title sponsor Sperry shoes!
