What is a fresh gale, used to describe wind forces at sea?
This is a standard phrase used to differentiate wind speeds to help in navigation. Fresh gales are winds of 34 to 40 knots, which produce moderately high waves of great length. Next in severity is the strong gale, which are winds of 41 to 47 knots. These create high waves and rolling seas.
