    Default Weather looks a little fruity this fri/sat

    Might wait until Sunday as i dont fancy beating around Portland bill in that alright it your going E perhaps.



    if anyone has a better forecast i'd be interested but not looking promising, hopefully its wrong and blows over by early Sat.

    It’s Monday. Given the accuracy of forecasts that far out, The weather will in all likelihood NOT be that....

    So it’s looking good for the weekend!

    METEO consult is showing roughly the same but going into Sunday more. If the 'forecasting' goes the same way as when I was on holiday 4 weeks ago; I think that Sunday will be a 'write off' as well for those cruising west including myself.

    I am off to Ostend in a couple of days so I hope you do not intend to send it down the channel to me.

    What always amuses me, is people that ask for a "better forecast". What you really mean is that you want one that shows less wind, so that you can justify going out & getting blown all over the place.
    Then you can blame the forecast, even though you knew it was wrong & ignored the one that you knew was right in the first place.

    I think the better forecast comment was tongue in cheek...

    I’ve been watching this prediction on a couple of sites for the last day or two. I too hope it’s wrong as the waves in the channel can take a day to calm down after winds like that.

    The east coast is just as bad, and we were planning our summer cruise to start on Saturday, going SW
