    Messing around in solent this w/e having bottled sailing to St Vaast tonight. Perfect wind, but Monday return looks risky.

    I am fitting a new bog whilst the Professional Navigator does the passage plan tomorrow, and if we get finished we are going to SIBS on Sunday.

    I have spoken to the weather gods and asked them to let the gale blow through in mid week but to give us a SW F4-5 next weekend.

    Thank you for your kind words.

    I hope you have a pleasant weekend in the Solent. Although whether you will find oysters anywhere there to match those in St Vaast ...........

    Time for a little gloat. Yesterday, at Arradon in the Golfe du Morbihan, I bought delicious size 3 oysters at 8€ a dozen.

    My only regret is not moving my boat out to Southern Brittany 22 years ago, when I bought her. It really is a delightful cruising area.

    I've spent my life watching weather, we got a lot in the west Highlands as a child, you will have the same in Wales.

    Because of school holidays and work we need to take holidays about the same time each year and I was impressed at the overall singularity of that table. We usually holiday in late July and often when we get back to work in early August we have a period of unsettled weather, thinking back two summers we crossed la Manche the day after a F7 blew through, the 4 m waves were impressive.

    Sounds about right for me.
    Thanks, I've not seen that facility before. Very interesting.
    I wonder how much it will be edited due to fast developing Global Warming?

    I like the line near the top "Autumn Rains", this year we've had it's cousin "Summer Rains"

    Yes, we get weather 365 days a year; some of it is quite pleasant - but not, I'm sad to say, this year. AFAIK
