Yikes! Nordsee ist Mordsee indeed tomorrow. Hope all North Sea sailors are well hunkered down. Those are hurricane force winds. I can't even imagine the sea state that will produce in that place.

It's a tricky place, but that will be in the lee of the land so not nearly as bad as when there's a NWer roaring in from Scotland

Nordsee sailors who DON'T stay informed about weather forecasts, don't live long.

Re: The North Sea tomorrow!

I read the thread title w/your name and was wondering why you would ever want to go out there this time of year. Now after reading the post I see you didn't suddenly get a crazy streak in you!!

Re: The North Sea tomorrow!

It's going to wash those nice Irish and Scottish beaches clean with that fetch.

You certainly wouldn't want to cross the N Atlantic this winter, especially with a 16 yr old kid on board

Went down on Friday to check the storm lines still on from the last little blow are okay. Looks like a cats cradle with 7 lines.

Surprisingly it has been a really nice day today, bright sun shine, 10'c and a gentle F4.

A healthy person may have better chances w/CV than being out there not prepared for such an event.

I'll let you know what it was like. We're hiding in the lee of the Shetlands. Looking pretty grim for the next few days. Least I'm on a big anchor handling tug and we have a good cook.

Oh, you are just watching the sea from the shore. First I thought you are starting the season now since there will be no winter and no ice this year.
