Wind Storms

Reboot is at Ao Po Grand Marna on the east coast of Phuket Island. The weather pattern is a few days of sunshine followed by a few days of rain storms. I prefer to anchor out when possible. It is quite the relief to my bank account. However I can into Ao Po to get some shopping and other errands done.

I have discovered that along with the rain comes strong wind gusts - typically reaching 30 knots. This continue as the front moves thru. From no wind to 30 knots to no wind in a half hour. This process then repeats itself perhaps 10 times a day.

As a consequence I have decided to spend more time in the marina until the weather pattern changes to something more benign.

Fair winds and following seas :)
