Weather bound in Olive Island Marina
So we are back in OIM – we left at 8h Brbinj, the night was fine as predicted only a little swell from the east. The weather forecast from all my sources were still the same :
A frontal system shifting towards the Adriatic. Rain - thunderstorms and wind gusting up in areas even up to 80 ktn – in the famous Velebit Canal north from us. It’s like a fjord and known for the winds down the Velebit mountains.
In our area we should for today and tomorrow besides the rain , wind up in the 30 ktn range. So our decision was easy, we will go back to Sutomišćica to be safe and not only be boat locked for two days .
As you can see from the pictures, the Skipper is skeptical with the weather – that’s life .
So will be cozy in our boat – enjoying movies , books and good food& wine !
