At 08:30 we were at 54N 3E with the Dogger Bank out of our starboard window. There was a definite chop and a gale blowing. During the night we heard a helicopter. It turned out to be the evacuation of a passenger using the equipment from an oil platform nearby and the person being evacuated to hospital in Norway.
The Captain said “Welcome to a rocky day in the North Sea”, and that is what we had. By Dinner this evening the storm had abated and we had a short but beautiful sunset.
