All well in this ‘ere salty shire with a brief and welcome respite today from the crazy seastate of late. I say brief as Ricardo advised in his latest despatch that I should brace myslf for strong winds, due in tomorrow and Monday. Gulp. Lets hope we don’t go through the Wash again.
I am in the northern sector of a very well-defined and stable high pressure system, thus in it’s SE to NW flow (remember I told you that highs in the Southern hem rotate anti-clockwise?), so the battering will at least help our Rum Punch campaign, even if it doesn’t help my blood pressure. Said ‘happy high’ (as our favourite Portugese weather god likes to call them) is about to be squashed into more of a square, than its current circular state, and so the week should unfold with some beautiful Easterly winds. This is perfect, as I will be able to head slighty South of West and the wind can do some of the legwork Westwards.
Happy weekending wherever you are in the world and thanks for all the commenteering and 100th celebrations.
