    Bob, if you have time in your hectic schedule, go to www.grib.us - download their grib reader - then you will find you are able to choose any area in the world from a simple gooey screen. You can choose the date range, interval, content etc

    I cant do it just now as I am away from base, but will do so later and send you a copy of the pictures if you wish.

    grib.us downloaded this evening shows winds generally SW, occ WSW F5 ish during Thursday night. Friday it tends to back a bit, and ease to S F3 on Friday afternoon.

    So Thursday night gives the better angle but might be a bit lumpy, with wind against tide.

    We will make a decision when crew get together during Thursday afternoon.

    Honfleur anybody ?? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Doesn't your boat go to windward?

    Yes thanks, but we like to keep it upright and comfortable, especially when we are into the Ovaltine.

    Ah ... ok .... I feel we're going to be a little frilly around the edges [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] ... the scrub I gave her 2 weeks ago has resulted in increased weed growth around the waterline .. hopefully the French won't measure the boat otherwise I'll be going up 2 bands for mooring fees!
