Wind forces the flags to come down

It was our plan to have a little trip yesterday, but the wind gusts were so strong that it would have been dangerous to take the boat out. All the flags at the marina were down. They are usually colour coded so boaters know what the weather conditions might be like on the water, but yesterday was so bad there were no flags at all.

Mark asked what could happen if anyone was naive enough to take the boat out. So, the wind could push the boat into the bank or another boat and fighting against the wind, it’s probably that it couldn’t be pushed off. You’d be trying to push 24 tonnes against a force of nature. Probably not a good idea.
