I just got off the phone with my boat pilot at 8PM (3PM eastern). He said the winds are expected to diminish overnight. He wants me to call him at 8AM tomorrow (Tuesday) for update on conditions with a possible start at 10 AM. He said that another cold front is coming in and there is only a very short window of diminished winds. I'm very excited and I hope that I receive news tomorrow that it is a GO ! With the hopes of swimming tomorrow, I'm on cloud nine.
