An unpredicted storm

26 September 2018
The force of the wind and waves managed to bend theese solid stainless steele rods that holds the ropes supporting the anchor chain

We were peacfully anchored i Rodney Bay when one morning while we were making coffee the wind suddenly increased and turned west wich is directly into the bay and a very unusual wind direction. The rain fell so heavy we could not see anything, the windwaves made us bump up and down, the anchor chain was banging and the wind gusted upto 45 knots. It was a little scarry, but the anchor held and no other boats drifted around us. After a couple of hours everything calmed down. This short and intense storm was not predicted on any of the weather sites, so you can never feel completely safe when at sea!
