Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Tuesday, 4 February 2014

When the wind blows...

The shipping forecast for where three french boats are working:

Lundy, Fastnet: South or southeast, veering west later, 7 to severe gale 9, occasionally storm 10. Rough or very rough, becoming high or very high. Rain or squally showers. Good, becoming moderate or poor

Latest readings from the Sevenstones Lightship at 1200 today showing the air pressure plummeting this morning...

with a look at what is to come from the 'live' world wind map...125 km/h is just under 80 mph...

which won't be good news for the three 23m French boats trawling off St Ives, though it's not like they don't know the wind is coming. Also in the bay off Godrevy is a small 90m coaster sheltering from the wind.
