Thanks for pictures. Hope to keep thread going so if any boats doing the crossing will look out for her!

re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

Spent a jolly rum soaked evening on her with her Jamacian delivery crew one night in the Bahamas back in the early eighties.Lovely old aristocrat .I was led to believe she was the same Nina mentioned in Allard Coles in his 'Heavy Weather Sailing" classic.
I'm not 100% convinced that last sentence is accurate given the circumstances in which it was delivered; perhaps Friend of Nina could clarify her history.

I am not clear - was there a TS/TC there?

BTW knots 80 = km/h 150. Thus "gusting 110 kmh" a possible miss-spelling? Otherwise 80kts a misspelling.

Other than a localised tropical wx event, 80 kts highly unlikely. I assume then we should read "80 km/h (43kts) gusting 110 km/h" (59kts). Right, wrong?

re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

Does seem inconsistent. However the wind speeds may not be overstated. NZ has had winds of up to 200 kmh very recently, not related to tropical cyclones. Tasman lows at this time of year frequently produce winds well over 50 knots.

re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

All local marine rescue stations in NSW have been asked to look out for Nina today. I'd assume that would also be the case in Queensland, Victoria and Tasmania.

re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

Hey but someone posted on another thread that a signal has been picked from her around Lord Howe! It says she is OK.

Correct?

re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

No confirmed position since 4 June according to NZ and Australian SAR authorities. So I think the Lord Howe info is probably incorrect.

This report seems to provide a coherent sequence of known events:

I don't want to sidetrack the other Nina thread, so I'll ask my question here. What is the correct action that should be taken by the skipper of a 70ft schooner given 50knot winds on the nose and 20-30 foot seas? Drop all sails and put out a sea anchor? Run the engine and get a couple of knots on the quarter? Run up storm sails?
Having watched the sydney Hobart race video I'm in all of some of the boats and sad for those that didn't make it.

Just picked up on this too. I thought they were heading to port. But, sounds like they are still out there and just having communications problems I hope.

re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

Does anyone know of a good weather map archive source for those waters? Something that shows the winds/seas they would have from June 4th till now? I found some good sources for US weather but nothing down there.

My husband is a meteorologist and just looked at the map for the 4th. The best source is www.bom.gov.au. Archive weather maps is what you are looking for.
