Good thing they picked one of the calmer days.
(Just a guess)

Yikes is right.

Re: Shift change at the lighthouse...

Saw that this morning, quite impressive to watch. Does make me wonder how often they're in those conditions, versus calmer or worse (eek!).

Re: Shift change at the lighthouse...

Some times, the change could not be done: the previous team of keepers had to stay for a few weeks more, while the storm lasted.

This video was made a few years ago at a French lighthouse. I believe it is "La Jument" near Ushant (you see the shore in the background). Now, French lighthouses are all fully automated. People come only once or twice a year, for maintenance.

Yes, 'moderate' seas.

This is impressive (with no shift change). Still calm enough to be flying about in it.



PS. Why I'm not interested in 'just' a Coastal Cruiser . . . . *laughs* Dodgy game that Coastal Cruising.
