Yeah, if it's as heavy as predicted, the visibility will be pretty poor, hope it's not bad enough to 'can' the race!

Don't actaully mind what weather, but it would be nice to have some calm seas and see if we can get the boat wound up before a turn approaches.

Otherwise if its rough we'll be OK and probably have a lot less repairs to do than most.
