It was awesome, we were sat outside on our patio (about 5 miles from Nauti Boy) and had the full lightning and thunder show but with NO RAIN!!! Superb!!

We couldn't actually see much but the clouds lighting up rather spectacularly on the distant horizon.

It was quite weird in a way, all the Sunsail Yachts are moored just out the front of our place on the outer waiting pontoon, normally when a breeze gets up you don't know they are there, but last night when the breeze got up the lines up the mast were clanging away, lovely sound just could not make out why last night and not the other nights

perhaps the most unbelievable thing i've ever seen. I was on the end of yarmouth pier doign a bit of fishing (carbon rods in thunderstorm, oh dear). Saw the storm approaching over the channel until it got right overhead. Then it tipped it down so we ran around outside watching the lightning with pints in our hands that filled up with water rather quickly!

These pics were taking by my mate mike osborne. I didn't have my camera with me moral of the story, always take camera to pub!

The pic of the huge flash sent yarmouth into darkness for about 10 seconds.

Clanging halyards, I love them. I'm a sailor that plays with ribs and have spent years with clanging rigging, it has such a soporific affect on me, so much so that for a while I became known (on boats) as the Martini Sleeper, anytime, anyplace, anywhere!
