Arcadia later sailing

Recommended Posts

I see that Arcadia arrived Southampton this morning on schedule and was due to sail at 16.30. However she now has a revised sail time of 04.00 on Monday morning. Wonder why such a late and unusual sailing time.

I heard it was due to weather, but seems fairly calm here so must be bad where she is heading. 

After the terrible weather on her last trip though, the ship & officers may just need a rest😊

Weather warning whereabouts for strong winds.  Forecast 70mph approaching midnight tonight.  Calm before the storm just now?

Just walked along the Solent, beautiful and calm. 

As you say, calm before the storm

Just left Queen Victoria - her departure also delayed due to forecast. Believe they are also changing her itinerary due to long range forecast heading to Canaries.

The wind here (Portland Harbour) is really starting to pick up now and the sky is very dark. I think the storm is due to hit us later this afternoon/early evening.

Likewise - and just read in the local paper cross Channel ferry services have been  cancelled from Poole due to incoming storm.  Sounds as though it's a good call to delay departure.

We have just had a five minute downpour, but no high winds yet, sun is still breaking through a bit.

Aurora is right opposite us here in South Devon on Marine Traffic.  Wind would be behind her so not too bad.

I've just been looking at Aurora too. We're on her tomorrow and just wondering if/how we'll be affected by this. At least it looks like the wind eases tomorrow pm

Yes it is going down a bit, but for 24 hours you will have residual swell.  The swell takes a lot longer to die down.

I'm not bothered if it's a bit bumpy once we sail, just hoping Arcadia gets safely away and Aurora gets alongside OK. I'll be awake early tomorrow checking AIS

Cheers, Andy. But watch out I don't come and steal your Santa on the way past, I reckon he'd look great on our balcony!

If the weather forecast is correct, he will be following you down the Solent tomorrow 😊
