2007 Nelscott Reef Tow-in Classic back to red status
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 12 November, 2007 : - - Well, the forecast crapped out on us again. The swell that was forecast to start on Tuesday looks smaller than originally hoped for, although still has some size to it. The problem is the wind. The offshores that we had hoped for on Tuesday are now forecast for Wednesday. Tuesday looks too windy with gusts to 25 knots forecast.
So John has decided to go back to red status, as there really isn’t anything on the immediate horizon that looks contestable. We are not even 1/2 way through the holding period, so there is still plenty of opportunity ahead of us. The first 2 years were held on the same weekend in December. Stay tuned for the next opportunity.
