Flat calm today... thankfully.
Gotta say, it was nice to meet Greg off the site.
While in the Cambell River area, it was nice meeting Conrad as well.
Great to put faces to names

Did your sailboat in the Abacos suffer any damage during hurricane Dorian?

And here I was....
Having an awesome run...
Flat seas...
Tide with me
Sun peaking out...
Underway, finally after sitting too long...
And you go and ruin it!

Yes
Dismasted
A hinkley beside me fell over, my front lower was ripped out and the mast came down.
Mast
Rigging
Furling
Main sail
Deck repair

No “named storm” insurance...

OUCH

Oh damn. Sorry to hear that. And sorry to bring back bad memories.

My boat was on Green Turtle hauled out and strapped down, but the mast still snapped at the spreader. No other damage though. Almost every sailboat in the yard was blown off their jacks, many dismasted, some with holed hulls. Pretty grim/depressing scene for sure.

I got back to GTC on 10/9. Found a flight on a rickety looking little plane flying supplies over, and was able to bring my boat back to Florida. Got lucky I guess.

Safe travels! Enjoying your thread.

The trip from Maple Bay to Sidney was nearly flat calm and after so many rain days, it was nice to see the sun...if only a few rimes. Was quite warm last night so enjoyed a walk down Main Street. Such a nice little town.
Blowing a full gale today!

rsn48,
Perhaps they rotate the other way.
Their ways on the east coast are sometimes strange.

Both hurricanes and typhoons are cyclones, though most are in tropical latitudes.
Here in BC, we haven't had many(any?) hurricanes, though we have had at least one typhoon, Frieda in 1962. The designation as a typhoon or a hurricane seems to be based upon where it formed. Frieda formed near Wake Is 166° E long, so western Pacific. Had it formed in the Eastern Pacific it would have been called a hurricane.
Less than hurricane force cyclones are common, in fact we are getting hit with one as I type this.
Our power just flickered. I think I need to go and get the generator ready.

Frank

Sorry for drifting off topic.

You riding out today's storm in Port Sidney? Those folks on the benches seem frozen in place.

Frank, be thankful you're not up here in Campbell River today! Blowing 55 knots at the dock, which is firmly in storm territory.
They are apparently bracing for hurricane winds up in the Prince Rupert area.

It is BLOWING out there!
Boats laying over at the dock!
Not sure of wind speed but guessing high 30s or more in the gusts...
Wish I could post a short video... the sound is amazing! Just howling and whistling!
Must be bad up in Port McNeil too then...
Hang on Conrad
Keith... they sure do! Sidney’s main st really is nice!

56 knots in Powell River. Lost power a few times. Stay hunkered down Frank. Looks like you have a few sunny days later this week!

It’s probably well into the 40’s in the gusts here...
I’d like to know what it actually is here .... today will find out tomorrow from other boats that have wind speed

Let's start a new thread for weather reports while we return to our regularly scheduled programming on this thread.

Thanks for the Consideration.

Just checked the weather...
As the saying goes “tomorrow is another day” and it looks like Emma B will have some sunshine to dry her off!
It’s been so rare I may have to search for my sunglasses
