COAST – YORKSHIRE ON STEROIDS
A mouth-watering 40 knot northerly forecast for the east coast was enough to set alarm bells ringing at the Motley Crew HQ. Gale-force winds from a deep low pressure up in the North Sea were set to pushing in a decent sized swell towards the Yorkshire coast, focusing on the stunning coastline surrounding Filey and Fraisthorpe that became our prime target of attention.
With winter closing in, this mission would have to run with military precision, so JC kicks off the story with a 2 a.m. wakeup call!
