ok it is stfu time. it takes 4-5 weeks to sail to hawaii
fom kali, i dont care where in kali ye leave from. they were on the northermost pathway therefore spozedly safe path.
this is el nino year. not the year to ail to hawaii
. however, most folks dont know this part. they forget the cycles our weather patterns have. every 4ish years we endure el ninos naughty ways.
so there hasnt been a furycame hit hawaii in 22 yrs-- guess what-- this is the year, and iselle and julio were a 1-2 punch for our island state.
these folks sailing from stockton to oahu
prolly had no clue this was coming.
usually furycames and ts skim mexicaost and we get rain,. not this year. all storms have beeen forming farther out to sea than usual, and hawaii is target 1-a.
how were they to know--they had to leave kali at least 3 weeks or 4 ago to get where they were rescued, 440 miles off oahu
. they did good.
yeah sure, east coast
gets furycames and yeah sure no one sails east coastal waters in summer ..lol
same goes for pacific, only we get many more storms with names than does atantic side. mebbe ye see 1 -2 named storms per year hit your area. here is a lot different.
no one believes furycames are a pacific ocean
occurrance. they forget we usually have 19 of em annually, in summer. people also take for granted the fact that hawaii usually is safe-ish from our e pac furycames.
i dont spoze these folks even figgered there would be one that far out this year, as our past 22 years have been really benign for hawaii.
before ye bash the crap out of these folks, remember--4-5 weeks to transit to hawaii from anywhere in kali.
storm was only about 2 weeks old, they left mebbe 3-4 weeks ago. how should they know , unless they have ssb
and check weather every day, that this was coming.
i think our lesson from this adventure of theirs is that mebbe a weather checking device for use during transiting wide bodies of water
is a good idea. if someone had been feeding them weather, perhaps they would still have their boat and still be out there not unhappily sailing to hawaii a lil more north than they were.
BY THE WAY!!!! NO error made by forecasters. storm went EXACTLY where it was supposed to go, all have been on target this year, as far as forecasting this is concerned--it went exactly as the folks who are paid to study and report these things, scientist-wise, not blabbermouths without knowledge, said it would.
go back and read all posted in storm 2k and in noaa's archives
. this was not a lil local weather gone wrong, this was a tracked and commented on and explored by aircraft fly overs named bitch of a storm. it was only tracked 2 weeks. to get to be 440 miles off oahu in a sailboat, one must have beeen out to sea more than 3 weeks. therefore-- they knew nada.
i would love to know what they thought the weather ahead of em was.. must a been a scary bunch of clouds and such as they approached
