On-board Diary: L’Ille Rousse at 46 knots ahead
Author: Carlos Pérez
Date: May 9, 2006
We are anchored opposite the port of L’Ille Rousse on the northern coast of Corsica. You can’t go above deck without having your toupée carried away by the wind. Since early morning, having extricated myself from the middle bunk for a change, we have been accompanied by winds of up to 80 km per hour. Luckily, they are coming from the SW which means that our anchor position is affording us an excellent protection against the swell. Today, we have had to suspend the dives we had scheduled as a result of being unable to ensure diver safety with the dinghy. A wind like this makes it unmanageable, not to mention a sure-fire accident risk. It is also not a very good idea to go ashore for the time being. We’ll wait until it calms down a little.
