Karpaz marina High wind storm

just to let every one know who has a yacht here in karpaz marina that your yachts are safe with no damage to any yachts except for a few bimini tears only .
from about 15.30 here in Cyprus we had very high winds for a sustained period of over 12hrs the highest i recorded was 57.6 knots which did last for about 1/2 hr and at one stage from 17.00hr to 21.00 hrs it was constant at 44.7 knots at around 22.00 it started to drop to 38 knots and was like that until 3.00 am
i personally would like to thank the marina workers for staying on and working till 03.00 hr and keeping a constant check on all boats and yachts while i had my beauty sleep i sleep that well as they came on board some time after 23.00hr and put two more fenders out on my stern as i was getting pushed back some 2.5 meters in this wind plus i was heeling over some 15 degrees so once again thank you, you know who you are

Dale

Good to hear they were working and not standing in line to withdraw every cent from their bank accounts.

Hi Dale thanks for the report. Hope you guys are all ok. Which direction did that windstorm come in from? Hopefully Kiki 1 weathered the blow without further damage to the Bimini. Wayne

Re: Karpaz marina High wind storm

Thanks for that Dale. If I had been facing the opposite way would I have been better off maybe. Should I consider having the boat moved to another pontoon?
Thanks for your valuable assistance in the midst of that blow.
Regards Wayne
