    Well he's a very experienced man and an instructor (I believe) and should know what he's doing.

    I was tempted to volunteer but all my gear is on my boat in Brittany and it looks the sort of weather where some warm, waterproof clothing will be required.

    Experience should tell him to reconsider, regardless of how many RYA certificates, have a look at forecast winds.

    I would trust JM's judgement and experience (from personal knowledge) over yours any day,but to say that on here would put me in the same ill-informed camp as yourself

    Really, you know nothing about me, but anyone considering a crosschannel in the forecast weather, is not exercising good judgement. If the situation stays as forecast, I'm sure JM would delay for another day. How many on here would leave harbour in 40-50 knts?

    Why not actually READ the original post before making inane comment.

    I’m looking for someone to help crew our Westerly Sealord from Portsmouth to Cherbourg next Saturday/Sunday/Monday. The wind looks like it might be a bit brisk for Saturday so maybe more likely Sunday?

    I think JM wanted to known if anyone wanted to crew, not whether people didn't want to crew or whether it was thought to be a good idea.
    JM, what anchor(s) will you be carrying?
