    Default Equinoctial gale?

    It's still a bit far out for proper forecasts, but it certainly looks as if we may have some wind next week...

    Or maybe autumn gale would be a better term. Equinoctial gales are a myth. Our cavemen brains do love to see patterns which don't actually exist

    I’m buying into that one.

    We all know the weather has nothing to do with the equinox, but we do get plenty of bad weather at this time.

    I am booked on ferry from Le Havre to Portsmouth on Wednesday 25th so I hope that won't be cancelled. I have to attend a funeral next day (not mine on this occasion).
