If you are watching the Live show then you’ve seen a stark difference in the wind from two hours ago.
It looked rough and forecast to get rougher. Now, though, it’s almost calm.
The wind is expected to blow again later in the day. But these guys may be done by the time it really moves.
That’s good news for the guys in the inland sea. It plays right into the hands of Jason Williamson, who already has had an incredible start. But it will also help Brandon Palaniuk, who will be able to move around. The same for Taku Ito and Ed Loughran.
Some of these guys must have spent a little extra time praying for less wind.
