Today we crossed a small area southwest of Islay marked in the charts for so-called “Overfalls”. They appear under certain conditions. 1.5kn of tidal currents against 25kn of wind is what we had – moderate conditions.

Nevertheless the sea state we went through was remarkable choppy and chaotic, nothing dangerous at all but clearly unpleasant. Once outside the boundaries we were back to normal.

Not Eddies yet, which is different to Overfalls.

Fair winds…
