The same seems to be happening in the South Atlantic. The big waves here (hit "next"), were taken in the entrance of Guanabara Bay in July, with the Sugar Loaf in the back of the photographer. The reef is about 20 ft deep.

Now, this is how the place looks most of the time. The surf pictures are almost exactly where the motorboats are.

Take care,

I imagine the guy in that first picture is crapping his pants trying to paddle hard enough so that wave doesn't break on him

probably hard to put into words, but what would you have done differently if you knew then what you know now?

I think he would have just stayed in bed and saved a lot of money. Let's start a new thread on sailing through the surf.

This is Palm Beach (Lake Worth) Inlet last week.

The boat in the pics is a 17 foot Wahoo. I don't know how Cyberspeeds boat stayed on the beach.

Great Pic!!!

The beach where I keep my boat is pretty high up. I have a winch built into my sailbox to pull it up if needed. The increased surf put more sand on the beach in front of my condo than we have had since the Francis and Jeane double punch. Tuesday I am going to move my boat in front of my condo for the next few weeks. Working tomorrow but hope to be doing a lot of sailing this week.

Craig,

Is there anymore sand down in front of the Jupiter resort?

I love that stop but I hate having to "commute" to and from the hotel to the park.

Juno and Jupiter took a pretty hard beating. The sand is spotty and the beach is pretty narrow right now.

Yeah the reason we have to go down to the park is because the beach next to the resort is covered with rocks apparently.

Not with the exposed coquina of the Pleistocene Anastasia Formation, it isn't. Geology - it's a bitch.

I was talking about the hotel there Jdub. Its bar-none the best one of the race and really, I wish we could spend more than one night there.

The tiki bar outside is amazing.
