Sailboat Racers Information

Thanks for your interest in our yacht routing service. We have been providing professional advice to sailors for nearly 40 years and have directly supported all Marion and Newport Bermuda Races since 1980 as well as many other Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and World-wide Races during that period.

We provide pre-trip consultation and then right before you depart we provide catered weather forecasts, ocean maps, and recommended waypoints (sent by e-mail) to help you take advantage of favorable ocean currents and avoid unfavorable ones. We also offer enroute updates (when allowed) to keep you up on the latest conditions and forecasts.

We are the only routing team to analyze the ocean conditions every day to give you the latest information on the Gulf Stream and associated eddies – as Jenifer is the recognized U.S. authority on the Gulf Stream. We also work to keep you from encountering hazardous weather and dangerous wave events using our “Gulfstream Hazard Scale” forecasting system.

If you are interested in using our service, please select from the following list of sailboat races we support this year for more information and to sign-up. If you have any questions or want to discuss, please call us at 240-432-9570.

Sailboat Racer Information

Jenifer Clark’s Gulfstream produces standard ocean and weather charts and forecasts (from a purely science viewpoint) and produces waypoints as general guidance to the mariner indicating where favorable ocean currents are located. Each participant and crew understands and agrees that the decision to sail, start, select a course, or continue with a sailing race or voyage rests entirely with that boats skipper and crew, that sailing, particularly in an ocean, is an inherently risky venture and that no assurances are being made as to the safety of the event or trip as to the conditions that may be encountered, the seaworthiness or condition of any participants boat, the decisions made by each skipper and crew, or any other matter of any kind that could relate to the safety of each person participating and the property thereof. Therefore, each person participating in these type events assumes all risk and responsibility of participating and sailing, and to the fullest extent allowed by law, equity or admiralty, releases, forever discharges and forever waives each and every claim that each person may have or come to have, whether known or unknown, against Jenifer Clark’s Gulfstream (JCG) including Dane and Jenifer Clark, from any and all claims, suits, or causes of action of any kind, however denominated, whether sounding in law, equity or admiralty, arising out of or relating to the event.
