I have often wondered what Force 5 in the North means. Sounds like F5 in the Vale parish, but could be Alderney. A recent response to Martin Nickolls' letter included the following information:
"The CI Shipping forecast area extends about 100 miles from latitude 50 degrees north to the Brittany coast. Often the wind speed in mid Channel (the north of the area) and near the Brittany coast (the south of the area) differ by two Beaufort forces, the difference between a safe passage or danger for a smaller boat."
