Here’s a timely reminder, before we set off back to sea later this month, that we live on a sailing boat, not a floating house. A few seconds of today’s gale force 8, gusting to 60 knots on occasion, in what is normally a sheltered marina. It’s like being at sea… (ish). Listen to it with the sound turned up to get an idea of what it’s like and imagine your house moving like this. It’s like a continuous earthquake.
