Peak GALE FORCE off the California Coast.


Location: California

Here is a quick preview of what you'll see in an upcoming video that will be up in 2-3 weeks. This footage is from the morning of September 20th when the winds and seas were peaking during the three days of gale force we experienced off the California Coast. These hectic conditions continued throughout the day, but by sunset, they were starting to slowly subside. Finally at around midnight, conditions calmed down markedly, and then 24 hours after these clip were taken, we had the engine on as the winds went almost calm 30 miles out from the safe anchorage of Drakes Bay.

Our next regular video which will cover our trip from Nanaimo to Point Roberts will be up here on YouTube this weekend.

Thanks to Kevin for this great footage!
