My husband and I live and farm a remote and isolated group of islands in the Falkland Islands. We use a 36 foot steel fishing boat to move between islands. Our lifestyle is pretty much self sufficient. We have a wind turbine for power our own veg gardens and 5,000 sheep that we farm for fine wool and fat lamb.

Severe gale force 11 in the south of the islands!!!!!!!!!
Theo at the moment, not taking too much notice of the sea state.
The met station is forecasting severe gale force 11 for the south of the Falklands. That's us!!!!!!! Please let them be wrong. Our wind plot isn't forecasting it but it is from the North. The plot does tend to under forecast the wind strength from this direction. At the moment we have about 30 knots which is gale force 7. Gale force 11 is 60 knots plus. Let us be right and them be wrong.
Desire Petroleum have spudded their next well. We have lots of shares in Desire, let this one produce oil!!!!
