It's pretty well dug in! Wind continues, steady 35, gusting to 51 knots. It was fun getting ashore in the dinghy! We're all alone in the bay, no friends this winter!

Re: Beaufort 10 Next 3 Days

We have the caribbean Christmas winds.. 20 to 25 knots, and they are warm and we can still swim. Bliss.

Have fun!

Re: Beaufort 10 Next 3 Days

Not Too bad here in Latchi Cyprus - gusts 0f +40 , but steady , swells not as bad as last week - one of the boats hosting a birthday cocktail party - hope no-one falls off the gangplank - snow in the mountains
