    Phill,

    Sorry to hear you won't be coming, but as you rightly say discretion is the better part of valour.

    We shall have to arrange another cruise in the near future when hopefully the whole contingent, plus a few more perhaps, can make it along.

    I shall keep your excellent spotter's guide safely in the chart table in expectaion of using it again when that time comes.

    Just waiting to take the ground at East Head to allow a quick check of the anode and a wash off of the mud splatters from all the rain in the morning before we re-float.

    If you're not at Yarmouth before us, Pete, we shall indeed await your arrival.

    Guys, thanks for your kind wishes. I hope you have a great time.

    In case the weather blows up and you decide to divert to Lymington, the chap I spoke to in the Harbour office was Andy and his number is 01590 672014. He said that in the event that weather meant that you needed to divert, there should be space (because he didn't think that everyone booked in would make it for the same reason). There should be space on the Dan Bran pontoon or on Town Quay.

    If you do divert, let me know because there is another formuite who is very local and mentioned that he would come and say hello. I can PM you his details if its appropiate.

    Ta - though today I'm looking at lack of wind rather than excess

    It may not be a race but I think gibletts may be cheating, he drifted right by me

    If its any help I normally use it seems the most accurate:

    http://www.weather-file.com/hurst/graph.htm

    This one I find reads under a couple of knots? Although it could be I only look at the data considering a couple of knots of tide under me?

    http://www.weather-file.com/lymington/graph.htm

    There is also:
    http://www.weather-file.com/highcliffe/graph.htm

    This one I do not know exact geography of so uncertain how it is affected by land.

    Hope it helps and the forecast improves for you...

    The trip over to Poole was cancelled due to high winds, and the probability that many wouldn't get back by Monday in continuing strong NE's. We're all stuck in Yarmouth, but looking forward to another excellent meal at The Kings Head before an early start tomorrow back up the Solent.

    I would invite you over for a drink on Pixie, but it's too cold to sit in the cockpit and with our 4 month old onboard sailing for the first time there is barely enough room for my wife and I with all the baby detritus below decks!

    Btw the real ale festival (mayfest) on the green had one real ale, so the pubs have a better selection. Burgers at the Wheatsheaf were sizable and tasty
