North Berwick Harbour

Thoughts go out the Boat owners in North Berwick & ELYC after yesterdays storms. Hope not too much damage has been done.

Unfortunately the damage was considerable. Carnage in the boat park. I'm glad my boat wasn't there in it's usual place.

Haven't seen conditions like that there for a long time. Reminds me of a day in early Jan 1996

Biffer,

http://www.multimap.com/s/igExeDwf is what it should look like.

we had to rescue our safety boat from mooring that day, and the wind was coming from the shore! 100 yards and the waves were breaking over the stern, auto pump had given up!

6 metre tides or normal spring is 5.7m , neaps 4.4m, the storm made it massive......

we directly opposite of North Berwick, the wind was coming from our side of water, picking up wave size till it hit the harbour over there.

The our clubs have a good relationship, and its total shocking to see the footage and as Ian said, i am afraid that the damage is significant, just hope insurance pays up.

There was also a dead body washed ashore too dont think related.

Yeh, if you don't know the harbour its kinda difficult to see whats going on. The waves are coming in from the North, north east and over the sea wall which is built on a rock reef, flushing through what is the boat/trailer park and then into the harbour. The entrance to the harbour is small and at the east (left of video) so the water is going out of the entrance as well as flooding the street area around the harbour.
