It's very windy, 20 knots constant with gusts of +30. We knew it was coming, so tied everything on the boat down and put away the Bimini. Thank goodness for our new Spade anchor, it is so much better than anything we have used before and gives us a lot of confidence, especially at night.

A sudden loud bang followed by lots of flapping. Damn, something's come loose. On with the head torch and out for a look, only to find a very large flying fish (size of a nice trout) flapping about in the cockpit. Minor compensation for the lost Mahi Mahi and something tasty for breakfast.
