Yes looking better 6kn to 14 kn for most of the day average chance of precipitation 15%
average sunshine per hour 23 mins and barometric pressure 1012.
Things may change though as we get closer to the date as only a prediction
Sunday the 12 th looking slightly better
9kn to 19kn 15% precipitation sunshine 37 mins per hour barometric pressure 1030
There are some nice highs building way to the west but too early to be very accurate at the moment .

Currently we're still intending to do the run to Yarmouth tomorrow. Launching at Southampton Dry Stack about 10.30 - 11.00.
Wind doesn't look to bad for the morning and veering Southerly for the afternoon so we will be sheltered by the IOW on the way back.
Anyone else still hoping to meet at the Wheatsheaf for the 1st Nachos of 2014 at 12 ish?

I am chickening out too! Cold I don't mind, wet and cold forget it, not unless it sneaks up in me. Will save the money for a better weekend!

I'm going to bow out too what with dwindling numbers and the lovely forecast. Much as I love the rough stuff I just don't fancy it at the moment.

Yes I will be there - and next week if there is another planned. What rubbish weather timings - the stars are out and quite calm at this very moment.
