Went out yesterday in Kittiwake and battled my way through the white horses brought up by the Force 6 westerly whizzing through the bridge. The sun was out and it was really rather fun.
Looking inland showed a different story - there it was dark as a monstrous crow and raining.
Today I went out with the Cutters in Bembridge and the same thing happened, except that we had only occasional sun and the wind was a moderate F2. Over land there was thunder, lightning and hail. Again, we had a lot of fun and stayed almost totally dry.
Schadenfreude is a lovely feeling.
