Boats a rockin’

Posted by on September 10, 2012

It’s been four straight days with winds gusting over 30kts, and it’s getting old.


See that 976 millibar low over toward New Zealand? It was 982 when passed over us a few days ago, and it’s been kicking our arse ever since. We had a 43kt gust (30 second average) measured onboard come through on the weekend… A bit too breezy. Check out this graph of wind speed and barometric pressure over time, made with data from the guys over at the BoM (Hobart weather station).


Barometers been on the up, climbing sharply (hence the wind), stable now around 1014 millibars, but look what we have coming next Wednesday?


More wind!
