Glad you like it, but it looks very bad on that size. It is really a big picture. Yes it was stiched together from several images.

Have another, I hope it turns out better. That's on Cies Islands, in Galiza, Spain.

Our boat is the one that has a small stabilizer sail.



Regards

Paulo

Yea I did too thanks for the compliment. I tried to get to South Haven, MI last week with the 50-60 knot wind/storm coming through, to take some good pictures of what they said were 12ft (3,6m) to 16ft (4,8m) waves hitting the beach. I couldn't make it and I knew my boat was securely tied fast so other priorities kept me from going.
These waves might not sound that high for an ocean but it is for Lake Michigan due to the very short wave length/interval. treacherous conditions, gales/storms like last week's one sank a 730ft (220m) in 1975 (the Edmund Fitzgerald from the song by Gordon Lightfoot) because it just broke in half and sank, as the hull wasn't supported by the water due to the short wave lengths.

Absolutely!
While nowhere near 12-16, some of the roughest weather we've encountered was heading to Vineyard Haven Harbor from Harwich Port, MA... short, steep 6 footers just beat the heck out of us for hours!
