i note studgies packing his bags!
But this is not that kind of trip. We don't set off and "deal with it" like in the solent - cos it's Biscay innit! So we are looking for a forecast BEFORE bombing down and ending up in tears in cherbourg or poole. Kindly slave away at the web forecasts to see wot it'll be like day 2 in biscay if we set off day 1 to Brest. We need a string of 3-4 nice days to reach Gib. It's nice if there's east rather than west, for a start.
NB: Only ONE "breast"/Brest joke is permitted per crewmember.
