The latest forecast added a few knots and the gale is touching severe gale conditions now, which corresponds with 9 Beaufort. The closest weather station in Stormark here on Fedje reported actual wind of 39kn, pretty accurate to the forecast. In 6 hours the fury will have moved on. At least this is a short intermezzo but still intense. We picked a good spot to overcome the second gale within 2 month an 2 weeks, since splashing in Kappeln.

My work/leisure program below deck is either accompanied by loud music to overtune the wind‘s howling or ear plugs during a short nap.

Lunch time!

Fair winds…
