How do you decide when to cancel an event due to rain, who makes the call, and when?

While events are very rarely cancelled due to inclement weather, it does happen on occasion. We use radar mapping to predict the likelihood of any strong storms in our exact location. Given our extensive experience operating on the water, cancellations due to weather are determined solely by the Captain of the Northern Star on the day of the event. Please do not be concerned by dire weather forecasts, they have been shown to be incorrect 85% of the time. In our experience, summer storms when they do occur, tend to pass quickly.
