I'm glad we have lots of trees / hedges round our boat park ... keeps us quite protected.

But ... just after the racing, our anemometor picked up a gust of over 35 knts ... and it underreads by quite a bit!

A small tree fell over during the racing as well .. kinda worried me a bit.

Nothing damaged in the dinghy park this morning, but a (shielded) gust of 30.5 knots on the anemomenter recorded over night

One boat written off this afternoon after sailing though - Flying fifteens do make a bit of a mess when t-boning each other (holed and partially ripped the deck off)

At HISC they took a bunch of boats that weren't registered at the club and put them in a line on the causeway several months ago. Still there are a 4000, an ISO, a 14 and a ff15. The 4 tonner and the 14 are more or less sat on the ISO after last nights wind...never moved the ff15 tho

How is it that people can own boats like that, and not even look at them for months on end? It's no wonder they get "liberated" from time to time! Round the back of the club there's a 505 that hasn't been touched for years: such a waste!

Wind moved a laser 4000?! That must have been bloody windy! Think that wins Tom, 85knots wouldn't budge a 4 tonner

I duno our MWF but at 2:30 am we had 55knots in the sheltered berth in soton docks. I also believe that Plymouth had a F11 on sunday morning according to our captain.
