A rare break in the weather/sea state was forecast for this morning, so we Headed out for a few hours fishing, the forcast was 1ft swell, 8mph breeze and the occasional light shower.
We got to our first mark and halfway through the drift we where hit by quite a heavy squall. We toughed it out as we could see clear sky behind and had a couple more drifts. The fishing was quiet, just a small codling apiece. As we where moving to another spot we watched a large squall move along a couple of miles inland. The breeze picked up and right across the horizon we could see more weather heading our way. So we headed in.
Just as we got to our landing point, while I was putting the wheels down, the heavens opened, first rain then hailstones. I couldn't get to the beach quick enough. The weather taunted us (the sun came out) as we pulled the SIB up the beach, but we'd had enough.
We got the boat home and stripped down, but before I could get it in the garage the heavens opened up again, a right corker this time, Thunder, Lightening and more Hailstones.
Squall heading off past Huntcliffe.
Thank goodness we didn't get caught out in that.
