Warning severe weather

Just in case anyone is thinking of going out today - DON'T.

Most of the West coast will be hit by possibly storm force 10 or 11 - my poor roof!!! Will have to check on the boat as well - harbour is quite well sheltered but that's one hell of a blow!!!

We won't be getting it half as bad as scotland though codprawn. There's only a 2metre swell out there right now with 20knots of wind... although it's breezy, it's still at it's "fun" stage

I will maybe take the canon eos out later on if it gets to the "proper weather" stage....

I don't know - look at the current wind speeds - seems to be coming from the South - for once Pembrey sands is not the highest.

Southern Ireland is getting the worst of it - Wales is sheltered from Southerlies - different story with South Westerlies which is our norm.

Shipping forecast is predicting a 12 in the Hebredies though!!!

Just got in
Did Herm and St.Martins point, getting a little choppy now though. Bit of a pain avoiding the Tankers taking shelter from the weather!!

heheee

It's gusting 55knots at work now, averaging just over 45knots constantly so it is pretty breezy now. Swell is also picking up all the time, nearly at 4metres - I soooo want to be out there on a tug now

Here's the Indus leaving the Dock entrance about 30mins ago - these are "sheltered waters", so compare the size of the door on the side to the wave

We did as it happens. A big voyage from Puerta Solenta to the Gunwharf Quays Lovely sunshine and great company.

Hope all is well elsewhere and not too much damage was done?
