Roaring Fourties? / 吠える40度?

This is what things look like after sever days of 25-30 knot winds and 10-12 foot chaotic seas.

If this is the “trade winds” , give us the *roaring forties.

Expect to be off the south tip of the Big Island of Hawaii and hope to find gentler winds and seas.    

*”Roaring Forties” are strong winds found in Souther Hemisphere, between latitude 40~50°S

風速25~30ノット、3~3.6メートルの波高の混沌とした海の中にいると船内はこうなります。

これが「貿易風」がもたらす*吠える40度なのでしょうか。

ビッグアイランドと呼ばれるハワイ島の南端の付近に向かっています。もう少し落ち着いた海と風がある事を願っています。

*「吠える40度」とは元来南半球の南緯40~50に吹くとても強い風の事を指す。
