Hello Hurricane Gonzalo

Wind forecast for the Farnes for Tuesday (Windguru website)

Monday 20th October comments: We’ve seen our fair share of bad weather over the last few weeks on the Farnes but tomorrow we’ll experience the next level. Say hello to Hurricane Gonzalo.

The shipping forecast for the next twenty-four hours says it all:

Farnes: South-west 6 to gale 8 veering west 7 to Severe Gale 9 occasionally Storm Force 10 later. Rough becoming or very rough later.

Enough said…lets see what happens tomorrow. One thing I will predict; we’ll not have any visitor boats, so count this place closed!
