BOGUS WEATHER BUMPS BOATS

At approximately 2pm on Sunday, the Okanagan Lake spirited a sudden southwest wind, blowing furiously to cause 14 inch waves and whitecaps within a 10 minute span.  This blew the staging boats all over the bay, forcing the race marshalls to cancel Race 55.  It was during this dry galestorm that Rob was injured at the docks.

Lasting for over 70 minutes, the grievous wind shut the entire festival down, grounding the Rats and their race 56 competitors on the beach.
