Useful GMDSS Information

This is a good Web-site to download a copy of Emergency Radio Procedures and learn more about GMDSS and DSC in general.

Thanks Charles

That's gone into my 'favourites'. How are the Channel Islands in this stormy weather?

Hiya Keith

It is surprisingly calm at the moment, but last night and this morning we had many mud-slides closing roads, fallen trees etc. I took my dogs for a walk this morning at one of the head-lands and almost got blown off I was standing there looking down at the main approach to St.Helier and the waves must have been 20 ft breaking all along the channel. Ferries have been put to bed until things calm down. Mayhem with the school half-term as no-one can get off the rock and flights are fully booked.

Sorry- you did ask

Charles

You should have said. I'd have sailed Quicksilver over, sounds just like the sea up in Scotland !

Weather like that has a different effect on you when you live on a small island (yes, I know GB is an island, but it's a big one). I think it must be psychological. When I lived on Orkney there were many times when the weather was too bad for either the ferry or the aeroplanes (perhaps that is what drove me bonkers in the first place ).

Mind you I do have one advantage over you. It would take a LOT of wind to blow me over the cliff!!!

Sit tight, stay warm and look forward to getting your boat back.

Keith damned wind again Hart
