They think it’s going to be a little bit windy…

It makes a pretty picture at the moment, but it looks like it’s going to be a bit hairy out there in the English Channel Sunday night/Monday morning. Oct_28_Weather.png With the media talking about amber warnings and winds of up to 80mph, and today’s outlook on the inshore weather forecast predicting winds increasing severe gale 9 to violent storm 11 for a time, it sounds like it’s time to batten down the hatches, or rather check your lines and sit tight.
“The weather front has been christened the St Jude storm by forecasters. St Jude is the patron saint of lost causes, whose feast day falls on Monday.” Nice.
Let’s hope there aren’t any sailing schools who think it’s a good time to take some day skippers out…
