Weather report for the following few days
A strong high-pressure system over NW Europe is leaning on a weak low-pressure system over E Europe. This is providing relatively strong gradient which is feeding the strong NE winds (Bora) which will die out towards the end of the week. Friday morning still looks windy with gusts up to 25-30kt but they should drop down to around 15kt in the afternoon. Temperatures should span between chilling 5 degrees during the night and fresh 10+ during the day. The night towards Saturday and Saturday itself seem light to moderate with air temperature raising for a degree or two.
So all in all perfect weather window for the 2017 Seascape Challenge.
IMPORTANT: This weather situation also made us change the program jet again, strong bora on Thursday makes warm up on the water unlikely for most of the teams so find the new schedule below. Note that out of the same reasons craning for 27s will also take place in Jezera.
