Cowes took a battering last night, 5 boats sunk, a further 2 sinking and 2 more blown off their moorings and ended up ashore.

Never good to hear about others mis-fortunes. I know the worst went through over night, bt first thing this morning, I was checking the Poole Live weather display, which was recording gusts of over 50Kts.

That's a shame, hope the affected boats had adequate insurance.

Weather looks terrible at home, lucky we are soaking up the Sun in Tenerife at the moment, it's lovely here

Hired a little Valiant 4m today and took that for a blast. Didn't see any dolphins though
