Leading Sea Ranger chatroom Beaufort Scale song!

to the tune from

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WujIzsn4ues&feature=related

Calm the sea and slack the sail, zero on the Beaufort Scale

With light airs small wavelets come, beaufort calls the wind force one

Light breeze makes force two and three, crested waves you'll start to see

Force four's called a moderate breeze, waves get longer on the sea

don't know how to find the chatroom on fb! ......help please .. skipper

Force six tosses you to and fro, Condor ferries will not go!

complete the missing windforces on the crew fb page!

Spindrift comes with a near gale, force eight and a very small sail

Nine is a gale strong as can be... and it will uproot a trees

When mph reaches 53....be prepared for a dangerous sea!

When the scale hits eleven, doomed is young boy sailor kevin.

When it's twelve on the Beaufort scale, hatches down for wind and hail.
