July 1 – Grimsby – Stormbound day 5

By | July 1, 2012

We are still in Grimsby…

The weather window did not happen. Our escape plan relied on meeting lighter winds on arrival at lowestoft tomorrow (Monday). It is now forecasted to be F5/6 and from the south. Meeting this lot on the nose for the last 30 miles, with the shallow water and sandbanks would be very bad.

So we are erring on the side of safety and look to be here for a few more days. Another low is about to cross the UK so we will be watching and planning.

Sorry to hear that but I think you made the right decision. You know the area around here and those sandbanks in the winds expected would be trying and tedious to say the least. Tuesday departure looks possible.
