JIBE Dates 2016 - preliminary


Ted was right; the first and third weeks in May 2016 look promising from the standpoint of predicted tides.

Even better, the first week - Mon May 2 through Fri May 6 - are even better with a much greater tide range. This will mean "minus tides", in other words, low tides as much as 1.3' lower than the average low tides. This means an even bigger beach than this year. Times are very convenient, too- a little bit earlier in the day. Here are the predictions...

Day........ Low....................High
M 5/2-----11:23a/ -0.1'---- 5;14P 7.1'

T 5/3------12:20p/ -0.5'-----6:13p/ 7.6'

W 5/4 -----1:14p/ -0.8' ----- 7:10p/ 8.0'

Th 5/5 ----- 2:07p/ -1.1' ---- 8:04p/ 8.4'

Fr 5/6 -------2:59p/ -1.3' ---- 8:57p / 8.6' >>>>> 9.9' total range!!!

Sa 5/7 ------3:50p/ -1.3' ---9:48p/ 8.6'

Normal total ranges are about 7-8', so these are extraordinary

These are based on St. Simon's Light, just to the north, and are predictions based on orbital mechanics, but will be close enough to tide tables to be published next year.

These dates are also again far away from the Turtle Crawl Triathalon and Memorial Day, and still before Mother's Day. Just have to get final approval from Jekyll Island, but that should not be a problem.

Mark the dates! More to come.

Yes we have a green light for 2016 with the dates of May 2 - 6

There is a possible problem with the Kite Fort but there is time to work on that.

Yeah it took me about 7 years to learn.... It's just as much the families that make the event as is the kites... We really enjoyed staying on the island the two days we did at the new Holiday inn this year. The week rental for a whole house is less per night. At least that's the justification.

Jason you'll appreciate this...
Took Joan to Driftwood Bistro last night for her B-day. They totally punked her. A few days ago she posted on a Facebook page called " friends of Jekyll island" and she posted the question of "where should we go for dinner for my birthday, Driftwood Bistro or the new Westin hotel? " The vote was overwhelming with a score of like 43 to 3 for Driftwood. Turns out that the Driftwood General Manager was tracking the thread all along and had Joan pegged from her FB photo at the front desk when we checked in for a table. When the check came after the meal they comped us the bottle of wine and wished her happy birthday. Totally blew us away.

That is cool Angus! The Bistro dinner is as much a part of our Jekyll vaca as flying kites. Even more special last year because we got to share a meal with good people Mark and Fiona.

Amanda really wants Joan's recipe for that salad she made at the luncheon at kite fort. It was amazing! Tell her we said Happy birthday!!

We loved the spot on Brice Ln this last year, but it was a little small for the family of 6, so we are thinking we may look for a bigger spot for 2016... plus we are in the process of adopting a furry 4 legged friend, so we will also need a pet friendly rental too... the main problem in the hunt thus far is that many of the realty places have not yet posted the rental price for next spring yet.

Sorry we're not going to be neighbors with you guys and Mark and Fiona next year :no:

Right what they did for us is to estimate the price and take a deposit based on that. If they're off by 7% or more, we can back out with full refund.
