Wind Overnight Warning Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Don't know what the wind speed is here at WRC but it's certainly wild.

Really picked up around 3.30 and strong ever since, think we'll be staying put till it subsidies.

No damage to the boat but the collapsable windscreen worked loose with a bang at dark o clock. Got up & secured it

hope everyone afloat is ok

All of you afloat please stay safe and don't forget your life jackets

It's a nightmare here in East Sussex at the moment but still would much rather be afloat, I think if you take care and a bit of common sense it can be exciting in a storm, crossing Breydon with the boat riding the waves, heavenly :default_icon_luvlove:

Take care and stay safe what ever you're doing

Here in Brundall we battened down last night, sadly not much sleep.

Unless the wind dies down the boat will remain in the marina today, so it could be a train journey today.

Ah, maybe, she just mentioned she was in in East Sussex in an earlier post, hence my confusion!

On the other hand..... "A fallen tree at Brundall had blocked all lines between Norwich and Great Yarmouth and Norwich and Lowestoft."   http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/weather/winds-of-up-to-60mph-fell-trees-and-bring-travel-disruption-to-norfolk-as-storm-aileen-batters-region-1-5192255

Well we made it through the night! No real surprise there but it is still very windy here at the moment but at least the sun is out.

Sutton Staithe Boatyard have been out clearing the reed islands that have drifted down the moorings, which is joly good of them. Only two boats has moved so far! guess the rest of us have some sense:default_biggrin: or fear :default_unsure:.

By the way MM NYX looks to be deserted, not seen anyone on or around the boat since we arrived!

Thanks for keeping an eye out Captain Joshie, Bernie lives pretty close to the staithe and is often in the Hotel. He and his son will be using it on an ad hoc basis.
