Once there we experienced, first hand, the Anacortes winter winds.... After rocking and rolling all Friday night we battened down the hatches, rigged the chart plotter up so we could watch the wind speed from inside and switched to travel mugs for coffee. I was able to catch a picture of the chart plotter with a wind speed 39.8 kts (45.8 mph). The forecast called for the winds to continue well into Saturday night, so I took advantage of the empty slip next to us and added some dock lines to help keep Cold Feet from being blown into the dock.
|45.8 mph winds!!|
We were going to head out on Sunday with a break in the weather but never quite made it out of the slip. I did leave the extra lines since the forecast calls for gale winds again on Monday... Sorry Cap Sante Marina, hopefully no one will move in next door.
Have a great week.
-Kevin and Ginny
|It's time to get up Sadie... Happy B-Day!|
|We got the dogs out during|
break in the winds... I wonder
where Ginny is...?
|Work on a Saturday|
|Go away... I'm napping... I might bite you...|
|What you think this is your sleeping bag?|
|Prepared for the next round of wind|
