    Default Anyone for Yarmouth?

    Call me old and boring but looking at Thursday's chart - which changes every time I look - it seems increasingly unlikely that we will cross Thurs night. Fri may be better but sea state likely to be lumpy.
    Sat chart looks like no wind but what do I know?
    How about a back up or alternative cruise for the lame, blind or unadventous? Have always enjoyed Yarmouth and we should all get in. Alternatively we could all go to Tome's for a cross dressing experience.
    What do you think?

    It's not looking brilliant............
    but then it could be worse.

    I felt quite cold today and I was only in Chertsey!

    Yarmouth doesn't sound very adventurous. If anyone did opt for a softer option, how about Poole?

    I agree that the weather looks a little uncertain. Certainly with a potential high forming over the Azores and a depression over Scandanavia everything is a bit uncertain. The thing is it could be a rather rough w/e or just perfect with reaches in both directions. In unstable situations like this it is usual that forecasts get much more accurate over the 2-3 day horizon rather than the 3-5 day one. We probably won't get a clear idea until 0500 (met office update time after overnight run) Thursday. I hve just looked and at the moment the different weather models e.g. ENCEPS and NOGAPS are very different. Who knows? I certainly don't in that I have never known a summer with so many unpredicted blows!

    Where are people checking for their forecasts - my usual sources (weatheronline.co.uk, onlineweather.com, metcheck) all suggest nothing over F4 for Friday - Sunday?

    My only concern now is that some of the forecasts give a N F3 for Sunday - which is not ideal for the return.

    Not tempting fate. Holding huge chunk of wood to forehead:

    The synoptics seem to be improving with each issue, and happily even converging slightly. Friday's looking okay to me - Saturday possibly very still, Sunday still a quesiton mark, but doesn't look like gales.

    Default Eurocentre chart has softened a bit for Friday

    Next time, it'll all be different.

    Dear Old and Boring,

    Per my post in response to Chris Enstone, I am definitely planning to go across based on the information available today. Plenty of time to change my mind of course, and I am not too big to do so !!

    Looking forward to meeting you again - somewhere

    Regards
    Young and Excitable.
