Mpprh Posted January 7, 2008 Share Posted January 7, 2008 [quote user="Quillan"]It is winter.On Friday the weather was fine when we sailed on Saturday it was gusting force 10 along the coast. The water was almost at road level in the marina, another few feet and boats could have floated on to the road.[/quote]There were high winds with damage on the coast here in East Languedoc over the weekend.I'm obviously a wimp. I wouldn't go out if force 10 was forecast ! Unfortunately weather changes, and I've been caught out a few times. Beaufort Force 10 (Storm) :Wind : 48-55 knots (88-102 kmh)Wave height : 9m At sea : Very high waves. The sea surface is white and there is considerable tumbling. Visibility is reduced.On land : Trees uprooted. Considerable structural damage.Peter Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
