Hi all,

Here in Les Saintes Maries de la Mer in the S.o.F. it is 1C, snowing quite hard, and settling.

We have 2 fan heaters working on free electricity and the temp in the boat is 19C. There is still the Mikuni diesel heater if necessary. So this afternoon we are going to settle down to watch Dr Zigarvo with a bottle of last years sunshine, (a nice rose wine).

I'm really glad we came to the Med to keep warm in the winter!!

Best wishes,

Paul and Sue

I know a few others who intended doing the same but didn't get that far.

The Gosport Riviera is basking in sunshine today :D 3C with a NE wind 15Kts. No snow......
yet. Lovely & warm onboard with all this free lecky.

Hello,
From Kios Island in Greece, the outside temperature is 7 to 12°Centigrade (46 F).
I have as wall two electric fan heaters on board my Colvic Watson 31’6.
I have 20/22°centigrade inside the boat. (71F).
I am waiting since 10 days that the North wind blowing at Beaufort 7/8 will stop, probably next week, I hope.
Best regards

Brilliant sunshine on Brighton seafront, but the bird bath is frozen solid, which doesn't happen often south of the Downs.

Ha! Luxury!

Here we had a metere of snow over the weekend, another foot yesterday and another metre or so forecast for next weekend. The sun has just come out after a few days of clouds and snow and the temperature is set to drop with a minimum of -22C (feels like -34C with the windchill) over the next 24 hours.

Still, we are in a ski resort so I'm not grumbling, mind you. Still bloody cold outside though......

I saw a brass monkey yesterday with a welding rod in one hand and something else I couldn't see in the other.

Keep warm all.

Absolutely idyllic weather in the Caribbean - the tradewinds are blowing lustily out of the E - NE, and the temperatures are not too hot - around 28-29C during the day, dropping to a positively chilly 23C or thereabouts at night.

It is difficult to type with gloves on. It is supposed to be pretty cold outside in La Rochelle, France, but dammed if I am going out there to find out.
The boat was supposed to come out tomorrow for a couple of days but they have turned all the water off for fear of it freezing so that idea, thankfully has been scuppered. Luckily we have free electricity so if it gets warm it is on.
Having said that there are advantages. Early nights under the duvet, wine in bed and finding something to do that keeps us warm... Bring on the cold :D

Just returned for a visit to England, a real shock to the system -6°C last night! How can one live in this??

No wonder people in this country work so hard, its the only way to keep warm.

Me: generally too warm and friendly for my own good. :D

Temp: Was -9 early this morning, much to my astonishment. One presumes my Windows sidebar was lying, although my feet and hands agree with it. Now it is -2. Apparently.

About 26C in the day, dropping to 18 or 19 at night here in Abu Dhabi. Feels pretty cool in the evenings which means flying back to the UK on Sunday is going to be a real shock. Hopefully someone will put the Eber on for me before I get on board at about 8PM.

It's about 9c here in Messi, biting wind from E about a Bf3 at the moment. Then the rain storms come through and it gets wet as well. Ebers working overtime, so toasty down below or off to the bar to drink hot chocolate:)

Too cold to think straight in East Sussex. Shopped for all my food etc a few days ago when it was double figures. Do not intend going out again until it reaches double figures again, basically hibernation mode.

Just up the road from Coromar, at Port Napoleon, We too had heavy snow yesterday. Mainly all gone now but very cold with ice on all the puddles and a howling mistral which will continue, on & off, for the next few days. I remembered to fill my water tanks thank goodness as the pontoon pipes are now frozen.

Inside all is warm, A small 750w fan heater. Backing up a 1kw radiating heater. 20.8c inside +/- freezing outside. Even the annimals don't much want to go out.

Had 5.2°C this morning in my cat's saloon in Cartagena, Spain. Light frost could be seen on the fountains as we've had a cold northerly wind. Lunchtime figures should be back to "normal" at 17°C very soon, so back to al fresco lunches in the cockpit!

Similar to what we are having here in the Basque Country. Yesterday we had snow all day, but not much. The mountains further inland are snow-topped with maybe 1 m coverage.

We are just on the coast, but under a 700 m mountain which is to our NE, so when the wind is from the NE and cold, we get snow in this valley even at 100m altitude.

More snow forecast for Sunday, along with strong winds.

And this morning I had 4.4°C in the saloon! But not a cloud to be seen at 0815hrs so could turn into a nice day!

You talk of Monopause, what happens if you are sailing a Catamaran, do you feel Chilli under your bonnet? :D

Not actually cold here (Kas Turkey) I guess (compared to some) 12 to 16 deg during the day..maybe down to 8 at night, but the wind and the rain keep on coming (Gusting force 10 Monday) Fan heater or Eberspacher keep us warm tho'.

Bloody freeezing here in Pt Napoleon. It has not been much above freezing for the last week and down to -4/8c at night. Pontoon water is turned off but I remembered to fill the tanks last Thursday, so should be ok for a couple more weeks. Fan heater and radiator are keeping the inside up to a nice 20c. Electricity is paid for @ €60.00 per month and gives 16+amps. Dosn't often trip if we take it up to 20amps by mistake! Stay warm.

Just over the way from Burnout,

In the sun, out of the wind, t-shirt weather in the cockpit yesterday afternoon. But three fleeces, hat and scarf needed at 8am this morning:eek:

Not grumbling though, so far every Wednesday has been fine for BBQ except one since last October!

I love Cartagenarian winters :D

Hi Paul & Sue

I get the Connexion too. I think I prefer weather on line's version. Very cold but no snow. I have just been told that my neighbour saw 70+kn
last night. Certainly one of the worst mistrals I have seen here. My lecky is a standing charge so lots of heat. The animals don't even want to go out much. We must meet up sometime. Keep warm. All the best.

All true but I did have ICE on my deck this morning! Nearly landed in the water!

Went sailing today on a friend's boat, around 1300hrs he even stripped off his t-shirt for an hour, it was that pleasant. Saw about 5 other boats sailing today.

Hi All,

Last night was the first night in a couple of weeks when the temperature didn't drop below 0oC.

Has Summer arrived? Or is Spring on its way at least?

Keep warm everyone, you lucky people in Spain!

Greetings from P Nap, Both. Yesterday we got our water back. Had a shower today and washed the black dust off the deck. Seems that we will be above 0c for untill next Tues & Wed. Positively springlike but we have three dead flamingoes in the port and all the plants, which were lulled into thinking spring had sprung, are now in a very sad way.

Stay warm. All the best. Harry
