Answer to last weeks Question

4 March, 2021

With a wind force of F5 to F7 coupled with a veering wind, the sea state is likely to increase, especially if blowing against a flooding tide, with average wave height of 1.5m.
Good visibility is greater than 5nm occasionally decreasing to moderate ranging from 2 to 5nm.

(This tells us that there is a possibility of a front moving through)
Given that it would likely to be wet and uncomfortable, I think I would try and see if there is a vacancy at a pub or restaurant to book a meal.

Note. The information in the question was actually taken from the forecast for that day. On checking with the Chimet website in the afternoon it showed a SE wind speed of F6 (gusts of F6) and wave height of 1.64m. It proved to be a fairly accurate forecast.
