Bit windy

It's a bit windy here in the Solent tonight. Garden furniture has gone walkabout and the windows are rattling. More tomorrow and Saturday with heavy rain

Classic British understatement .
Hope you are snug and warm. A least the wind direction is steady.

Re: Bit windy

Wusses! 25 knots average is just a good fast hairy dinghy racing day down here. But then, the water is nice when we ditch

I dare say a dinghy in 50 knots of wind is quite exhilarating

Re: Bit windy

I hope everything is OK. It's always a worry when you are not on board.

Re: Bit windy

BTW.
This our current wind report.
Hopefully, it's some sort of technical glitch.

Yeah, Baby.

When I am king, winds will top out at 30, which is thrilling enough, and it will only rain at night.
