To the Esteemed Race Committee:

Considering the forecast current and wind conditions for the Galveston Bay Entrance posted below, please move the starting line to a committee boat, stationed North of the South Jetty light (marker 5A,  which must be left to startboard) but just out of the main shipping channel.  There is a reasonable amount of space there. 

If you don't change something, you may not have many TRW finishers.

Refer to NGOFS forecast charts attached

Sincerely,
Capt. Bill Jenko

A couple of amendments to the SIs...
One to replace a non-existent fixed mark with an existing one, and the course changes that it affects:

Another to allow the RC the option of starting the races outside the jetties at 5A.

First of all wonderfull party at Elissa. Jazz band shrimp  everything.  Awesome race committee.  Not just saying cuz we did well.  I think the last one i went to several years ago we just stayed in the club each night.  It helped we had a car there and got around.  The jetties were very intimidating when we were trying to get out the second day.  I understand why some did not make it out- we just made it in the light air.  Had I been in a heavier boat I would not have made it out. 

I look forward to the next one
Cheers
