Great presentation tonight.
The Sail Newport staff and equipment were truly invaluable that evening - thanks to all.
Enjoyed this very informative webinar! Memorable evening for all of us on the crew of Dr. Shoemaker's Ensign Challenger. We were knocked down and swamped putting all in the water about 500 yards to the northwest between Goat Island and Ft. Adams. 🙃
An outstanding presentation! When you post the recording of the webinar it’s a must-watch for anyone who missed tonight!
A great webinar. Thanks to everyone who “produced” such a professional presentation.
I have some pictures of that evening taken from our mooring in Newport Harbor. I’ve attached a video.
So impressed by the actions of fellow sailors.
will you run this again....got home late and missed this. Grrrr......
Great webinar! Thanks to all the participants.
What an enjoyable event. I would like to thank Brad Read and Sail Newport for the opportunity to participate. For those who missed the link during my presentation, the materials related to the August 25 downburst and thunderstorms in general can be found at www.lakeeriewx.com/Seminars/Newport.html
Was up on the 3rd floor deck of a Goat Island condo and watched this squall approaching from the distance while boats were racing and sailing.
Saw the wind roaring across the bay making all hell break loose.
Time to shorten sail and put the bow into it and head for safe harbor
