Cyclone Preparation

Hi everyone,
Darwin is under cyclone watch this evening - the first of this cyclone season.  Interesting thing is there isn't a cyclone yet!  There is a high probability one will form nearby in the next day or two.  The BoM's current 4-day chart series shows a cyclone forming more or less over Darwin on Friday night.  Happily Zen Again is well prepared, in part because we're already booked to fly to Perth tomorrow!

Cyclone preparations include removing awnings, doubling up mooring lines, clearing the decks generally and lashing down anything which won't fit below etc.  The photos below show most boats in the marina are now "stripped for action"...

We have left lashing down the dodger and stowing the air conditioner until tomorrow morning.  Otherwise she's ready.

And here's a picture of sunset earlier this week...

Here's hoping the cyclone heads west.

Happy Christmas!
