Springline - That was Wednesday July 13. just before 6 pm. We were anchored off Ida Lewis YC, having just returned from Block Island. We spent the night in Newport before continuing on our way up the bay. The front came in from the NW. You can tell from the pic where the rain was filling in from the bridge toward the anchorage. It really didn't blow that hard when the front came through and it cleared off in a couple of hours, but during the night, a 2nd cold front came through. I had turned in with only had 1 anchor out becasue I thought the worst had passed earlier in the evening but I was awakened at about 1 am, bucking like a hobby horse, with the wind whistling through the rigging. It was gusting from the North/North East, for which that anchorage is relatively unprotected. After lying awake for quite a while, I decided the only way I was going to get any sleep was to brave the night and use the dingy to drop my delta anchor with 40 ft of heavy chain. It took me about 45 minutes to set the 2nd anchor, but I slept well the rest of the night.

Downt the bay race (123nm) dodging cells in 2011. The big one ahead of us was much worse.


And the delivery trip back up the bay had a nice bearded bastard that brought 35+ at sunset.


Wish I got a pic of the storm over the Gulf stream, that was pretty wicked looking.

A t-storm/squall came through last summer and dropped a couple of small tornados to the ground - then roared right over us:









Good times.
