Whats the Windiest you have been in?
Today, I went out and I was immediately hit my enormous amounts of air particles rushing from high pressure to low pressure. We know this as wind. I wasn't sure how much but it sure felt like alot!
When actually sailing the most wind I have been in was a Force 6 in Corfu. That was a great fun time and I was planing from one end to the other at high speed with my entire body out the back of the boat trying to keep control.
When not sailing, I was in a Force 7 in Croatia when I was on my neighbours yacht, which was attached to a buoy. We were asked to move by the Harbour Master as the buoy was held down by only 1 tonne (500kg in water). We had to use the motor to go downwind to a safe anchorage. It was an incredible and frightening experience. We had to set up an anchor watch for the night just in case. There were only two of us on board!
So what about the rest of you? Anyone been in a storm?
