High winds are blowing the length of the Strait, which is about 50 miles of open water, building waves as they go. It can be very uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous to cross at these times.
I’m not worried about that. My good crew is always ready, even eager, for a rough ride. As captain, I’m not so much.
So here we are, forced to relax on our sailboat, eating, drinking, watching movies and reading old books, all while the rain patters on the deck.
I’ve checked the newest weather report and it looks like we can go in two days. The boat is ready, the crew is ready, and by then the captain will hopefully be satisfied with the crossing conditions and be ready to sail. Wish us luck!
