Thanks Minnie, left Liverpool Friday morning with a forecast
of W'ly 5 to 6, with an outlook of W'ly 5 to 6, occ 7.so it was going to be a beat all the way, and a nice run for the return trip.
By mid afternoon it was force 8, and in the evening it was gusting 9. So it was a bouncy trip, and a challenging arrival at Deganwy.
Following morning it was just not safe to get out of the marina with the wind
. By now the met office had caught up with right weather
, and was indicating that the wind should ease later. Eventually made it out of Deganwy Saturday night, again it challenge to back out of the marina and half way across the river in 25 kts of wind, before getting enough room to turn and head
Pleasent trip back to Liverpool, had to reduce sail to a minimum to avoid arriving too early for the lock.
And it was pretty cold, but really enjoyed it.
