Naked in the rain

After a long period of stable weather we saw a convergenze zone with rain and wind afterwards approaching, tucked in and prepared the rain collection system. During breakfast we heard heavy rain pounding on the island next to us and minutes later bucket-loads of water splashed on us. We could see hasty preparations on neighbouring boats–nobody wants to accumulate wet clothes, so people tend to hop around naked, adjusting hoses and spreading canvas… Then a few late-comers got to anchor just in the middle of the downpour.

We have a watermaker, but rain means high-quality water for free, so we’re always happy to catch us much as possible. As soon as the tanks are filled the excitement wears off, so we hope that the predicted week of nasty weather will be cut short.
