13 Apr He’s Making a List and Checking it Twice
He’s making a list and checking it twice.
Any time the log book is open to these pages, the weather is not looking to make life aboard easy. Even Sir Salty has his game face on as I work through these lists.
The weather due here in the next 24-72 hours is going to be anything but pleasant. To be honest, I am more than apprehensive. I am trying to prepare as opposed to worry. But the thought of 40+ knots and 7-8m seas is makes the not worrying part hard.
In the last 18 hours or so I’ve decided to get some latitude in what’s coming as conditions North are forecasted to be marginally better. The wind and waves are also more severe further east as the gale passes over me so staying a bit behind the developing weather is also forecast to be marginally better.
At this point, I’ll take anything I can get and marginally better beats marginally worse hands down.
