I hope that our Irish contingent have got their boats safely tucked away!

I'm at sea at the moment, on the west coast of Scotland. It's getting wild already, we're hiding in some shelter with a whole world of chain out on the anchor and listening to it freshening.

Certainly looks it! The sea state around the Isle of Man must be interesting too with a 50 mile an hour southerly wind blasting up the Irish Sea.

Thanks. We're over a hundred tonnes with a 350kg anchor and 120 metres of chain thicker than my arm, each side, so we should be ok but it's not going to be the most peaceful evening.

Nope - the willkcraft rode the storm on her mooring. Big F.O. chain and a couple of Dyneema risers.

Redbay - when you have to stay at sea...
