Another gale and another ferry port - very big one this time. Our first experience with big difference in tide and current today. Only 15 nm today in 4 knots with both current and wind straight at us..
Heavy wind and rain just passing. Just listening on channel 16 how a 34 ft boat is stranded in the low water and has called mayday just a little West of us. All will be OK it sounds.
