Local forecast is for a gale force six, not exactly extraordinary. Great for sail-boarding though!

JM, when was force 6 ever a gale? A yachtsman's (if offshore) yes but not proper! 

I have just downloaded the MSLP. Atlantic analysis and prognosis to +96 and given a few hours I think you will be seeing a true gale force blow. 

I would strongly advise against getting your sail board out in the morning.

Oh dear! We had better get over and check on Brilliant come Tuesday/Wednesday. 🙁

Not really blowing that hard yet, but we have settled for the night and Moonlight Shadow is starting to sound like Treebeard. Oh, the creaking!

Went down to the mooring just to check, everything was nice and snug, don't suppose that the wind has topped force three all evening.

Getting up down here in East Dorset, maybe along the coast it could be "refreshing"?.

Hi Helen,

Did Lightning go out today?, her new mooring is right in front of the engineers shed at the head of your dyke?.

Okay, Force 8! A bit of a Michael Fish forecast so far.

It'll all be over by then!

Isn't she nice and comfy in her boatshed then?

Local forecast (Lowestoft) max 45.3601 m.p.h., a mere draft. Might stir the fish up!

No real issues here at WW as of yet. Yes a bit blustery but that’s all, it is steadily increasing

blowing a hooley at Brundall now, hitting side on and sticking us to the quay heading so at least we aren't bouncing to much.

K’nell, some proper strong noisy gusts came through about half an hour ago. Apparently this is just the start, it’s supposed to be worse come 0600.  So far so good. ‘B.A’s canopy is still in place

winds blowing some strong gusts here, I will be off in half an hour or so to see if the boot fair has been blown away, no sign of damage, but the wind through the trees is noisy.

well for some strange reason the boot fair had been cancelled, so its back to watching youtube restoration videos and replacing the burnt out soldering iron on my solder station (i found one of my old soldering irons yesterday this enables me to go forward.

Graham got up at 6 this morning to adjust the ropes, as we were starting to bounce about a bit against the key heading.

Speedtriple - Lightening is nicely tucked up at her mooring at present. She didn't move yesterday, and I haven't noticed anyone on board. She's in a lot more sheltered position than we are!

Hi Helen, if you're concerned about being blown about, take MS down the dyke and tie alongside, at least you will be safer. I'm sure the occupants won't mind.

thanks Speedtriple, that's a kind thought. I don't think I dare move at present though!

Just had a look at the weather forecast and the wind doesn’t look to reduce around the Broads until Tuesday evening.  We’ll probably be heading for home shortly after brunch (can’t leave without our bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms and scrambled eggs), to dodge falling trees and flying debris on the way home.  Just thought about our garden furniture and whose garden it might be in by the time we get there!
