Bad luck guys that we had to cancel and reschedule all sea related activities on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. But with a forecast like below we have no choice. In fact , with a gale warning, it is standard in the industry to call off events like fishing tournaments and competitions. Here is the warning:

And when you look at the actual sea conditions as in the screen shot, just stay at home!
