Wild night of windy weather off Cornwall.


You the weather must be poor when you see the two big stern trawlers, Wiron 6 and Wiron 5 alongside a couple of french boats dodging in the lee provided by the Isles of Scilly...



even the weather buoy south of Plymouth harbour is showing close to 40 knot winds at 6am this morning...



while wind data from the Sevenstones Lightship has only just started responding again and is now headed for 50 knots, when an area of low pressure passes over the south west, the barometric pressure decreases and the wind increases...



as the WindyTV weather animation shows, the worst is about to pass...



just as well with 45knot winds indicated (that's around 50mph) which is keeping all the Newlyn fleet safely tucked up in the harbour - gusts up to 60mph have been reported al over the west of Cornwall...



not so lucky are these guys, 19 Breton trawlers and crabbers all still fishing or dodging - some of whom are east side of the Lizard between Falmouth and the Dodman Point which helps to cut down rise and fall of the heavy westerly Atlantic swell...

not so many years ago, Newlyn and other Cornish ports would be full of these hardy Breton trawlermen in their then slightly smaller (18m) boats - but it seems these days that the extra 3 or 4m in length many of their boats now have makes all the difference between fishing or dodging in poor weather and having to make for a port of refuge!
