So basically, a huge risk to take if you decide to sail if you see one of these...Or if you see one while sailing, the idea is to sail away from it and run for cover...
Nooooooooo.... Unless you are sailing on Neptune's boat, you aren't going to outrun this. Sailing closer to land is a bad idea unless you are 150% sure you can make it is a bad idea.

Raise anchor, batten down, rig for heavy weather and head for deep open water FAST!

Not such a perfect moment but interesting none the less. Last night we peaked out at 74 knots - 147 Km/hr beside my boat at the Maritime Museum. On my boat I had a sustained 55 knot reading most of the night.

Campbell River Fresh Water Marina this morning.

Yowza! It blew pretty hard here as well. Apparently the ferries were shut down for a time this morning - sure was a big backup in the lot at H.S. Bay.

I drove through Tiddley Cove this aft. Yesterday there was a nice Shark moored near the dock, a scruffy Soling moored behind it and a mastless Grampian 23 behind that (it had been washed ashore, dismasted and recovered from the head of the cove last year).

Today there was a mastless Soling, a mastless Shark that dragged past the Soling and dismasted both of them and no G23 - well, at low tide there WAS a bow pulpit showing a little.

Jesus! Everything is allright?

Strange weather all around. Here it looks it is Spring already. No rain on the last 3 months. The farmers donít know what to do.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

I have a perfect moment. There are no pictures, only a memory.

Friday night we officially took possession of the S/V Serenity Now.

One of the happiest moments of my life.
