Doug,
That is aweful. I am so sorry for you....but let me know if you need crew!

We have 63 in Lym (kn wind gust at Hurst, not 'C) and the high tide flooded the dinghy park. Made me wonder what could be made to work in such wind. Even with small sail & rig the windage on a hull becomes an issue. I guess tiny windsurf board is one answer. A hull would almost need a small keel to stop it blowing away, or T foil downwards....

Will hopefully get out for the LTSC Charity Pursuit tomorrow if there is a lull in the storm.

Peter

Peter,
Jonny is back for a few days and mentioned the weather.  The downside to weather here is the summer which is so hot!  I was in Riyadh and it got to 52oC.  Also if you live out here for a few years you yearn for a cloudy day and rain!

Just buying another house in Lymington and planning our return!
